Just realized the weight of moving the primary location of our source code given the number of links to it out there

And the whole forks ecosystem

And the way commit messages refer to GitHub issue numbers


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 Any idea on how to prevent that happening again, now just with GitLab issue numbers and links?


@schmittlauch Seeing how I own the domain and the database, that seems like less of a problem.

@Gargron Ah, didn't know that Ultimate is also licensed to FOSS for self-hosting.

I guess the features you mentioned are also the ones missing from #gitea so far? (Even they develop still on GitHub)
