Dear @gitlab, after reading this, I am ashamed to be using your product:

We will stop using it as soon as we can manage to and I will stop recommending you to others. Unlike you, we don’t associate with folks incompatible with our values.

Shame on you.



@aral damn it, I was going to move to them after Github (who is bad enough) defended working with ICE.

Any idea what platform you may use in the future?

@danarel @aral Gitea's relatively easy to self-host, if that's an option

@lifning what I don't get is, why dont they host their own code?

@danarel @aral

If you don't want to self-host, @codeberg is worth considering. They are a German not-for-profit dedicated to free software and collaboration.
They offer free hosting and voluntary membership if you want to contribute.

@ck @danarel @aral @codeberg Looks like they run on Gitea, which I was going to say is a solid alternative:

@matt @danarel @aral
Yes, they are. They are also pretty involved in upstream development of Gitea itself, ie. contributing code back to the project and such.

@danarel @aral I'd always vote for Phabricator, although I know it's not for everyone (it's very unlike GitHub/GitLab/etc in its interface in many ways).

@danarel @aral

This statement only applies to the corporation called GitLab Inc., not to the free software product called GitLab Community Edition. You can still use any one of the many independent instances running GitLab CE.

A CEO's statement about his company policy doesn't suddenly discredit the work of hundreds of contributors who put years into making GitLab CE.
