On the other hand, that's only going to get worse over time - even more links, even more forks, even more commit messages.
And maybe Microsoft won't fuck up GitHub, but sensing this vendor lockin now, what would happen if they do?
So it's probably a band-aid that has to be ripped sooner rather than later. 🤔
@Gargron i'm surprised you didn't go with some self-hosted solution like gitea
@valerauko It is self-hosted. It's a license for a self-hosted software.
@Gargron oh ultimate is self-hosted? then just the usual "but it's just another business like github" argument
@valerauko If it's on my domain and my hardware then what github-like argument can you make?
@Gargron FWIW, you can move the repo and turn GitHub into a mirror.
GNOME did it before moving to GitLab, and it did improve contributions. (The recent move to GitLab majorly improved collaboration even more — but that's because they had relatively antiquated systems that still needed to be used beore.)
But, basically, you can move and keep the project on GitHub as a mirror. If you do so, I'd suggest having prominent notice in the README and links to the main repo in the README & project URL.
@Gargron Oh, nice! GitLab's been moving more and more Enterprise things into CE. Great to hear!
I guess the docs just need updating (just like every software project, ever).
