KDE has migrated to GitLab! Most projects are now hosted on KDE's own GitLab instance located at

Here's GitLab's blog post with more details on the move:
@t0k We didn't migrate to GitLab.com, but GitLab. So codeberg is not an alternative to that if we host the git server ourselves anyway.
@kde Migrated from where?
A migration of this size is an impressive effort. Well done! And importantly: it shows that it can be done.
I like #GitLab for a few reasons:
* Good #CI/#CD capabilities
* Good integration with external tools/processes
* Solid, well funded team
* Very open culture
* Good principles/pragmatism balance
* Not (yet) a Silly Valley / #GAFAM victim
IMO this is a good fit. 👍
@kde Ugh, more good projects moving to an open-core product, running proprietary code of a VC-funded startup. Sad.
@nanananacuntboi @kde GitLab can (and will) literally sell to any bidder when their time is up within the next 5 years. Unless you think they can pull off a successful IPO (which is highly unrealistic). Then all that open-core proprietary code, that is not licensed under an open-source license, will be controlled by whoever buys it. You can only fork off half of the product.
@kde That's great!It's really important not to use Micro$oft Shithub nowadays and even more since they broke their website with this ugly new design.I hope many more projects will follow.
