Remember

Not everyone can self host software systems.

Not everyone wants to self host software systems.

Not everyone gives a shit about tech

Most people just want to go online, do their thing and move on with their day

If there is a mass exodus from GitHub / GitLab or others we people hosting our own infra need to be good about discovery, community building, community engagement and more.

We also need to figure out how to federate authn/authz. I'll skip over submitting small things if it means yet another account on yet another server run by yet another random.

Centralization isn't great but it does facilitate discovery, community and engagement.

We need to keep this at the back of our mind.

The alternative is an expensive web, full of bloated libraries and bad management decisions

The Linux speedboat effect. Either you throw your patches onboard at exactly the right time or else the speedboad continues leaving you paddling in its wake. Once you're behind the main developent it can be hard to catch up.

If y'all keep bickering too long you'll be bickering amongst the ruins of another platform torn apart by infighting
