https://blog.thea.codes/we-need-to-talk-about-github/ on what we would need to do to build a hosting polyculture for open source code
@brainwane it is interesting that many open-source project organizations have long managed their own code hosting for projects both directly under their umbrella and personal stuff by project devs. Some of them have now switched to gitlab instances (using the open source community edition code, mostly), e.g. gitlab.gnome.org, gitlab.freedesktop.org, but there's no real *federation* support (e.g. cross-instance merge requests). And few places for personal projects of unassociated/new developers.
@brainwane I wholeheartedly agree, but what about codeberg.org? No need for hypocracy ;)
@brainwane I love the analysis of the problem and the proposed solution. the "hosting polyculture" is an awesome principle in general.
