Setup my own instance of Gitea and migrated over all my private GitHub repos as a starting point. I do like GitLab, and feature list is impressive, but the closing off of certain features in the Community Edition seems counter to spirit of true open alternative to GitHub we should be looking for. I've also never liked the interface quite as much - Gitea maybe steering too close to GitHub clone, but it's also just cleaner. Bring on Gitea/GitLab/etc federation, in any case!
