"Maybe that's enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom is realising how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go." - #AnthonyBourdain
You need to keep traveling.
"Consider all the data that's used to provide the value-added features on top of git. Issue tracking, wikis, notes in commits, lists of forks, pull requests, access controls, hooks, other configuration, etc.
Is that data stored in a git repository?"
@maloki very much agreed. I also think the github drama helped people realize that the root cause of the forkoff drama was bigger that just eugen - as long as we don't collectively and democratically control our platforms, organizations, and communities, when Bad Shit inevitably happens, there's not much we can do about it.
cooperating with one another is just as important as federating with eachother!

This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?
The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.
You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.
You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.
Periodically I revisit old blog posts and update what I knew then with what I know now. I think it's important to not let that valuable info go out of date, just because it's not front of mind now.
Here's one I updated with a new doodle, too. :) https://vickylai.com/verbose/replace-string-sed-command/
"...designers should call out nefarious dark patterns, even when their colleagues are building them, so that manipulative interfaces that encourage people to give up their data don’t remain the default." https://www.fastcodesign.com/90171699/what-is-gdpr-and-why-should-designers-care
Let's not forget that design determines user behavior.
"Firefox’s designers have the leeway to make these privacy-first decisions because Mozilla’s motivations are fundamentally different from Google’s. Mozilla is a nonprofit with a mission, and Google is a for-profit corporation with an advertising-based business model." https://www.fastcodesign.com/90174010/bye-chrome-why-im-switching-to-firefox-and-you-should-too
Firefox is my default these days.
"Bye, Chrome: Why I’m switching to Firefox and you should too"
Having said that, I had to work with GitLab recently, and it was a nightmare. It's just trying too hard to be too many things at once & failing to be a serious contender for any of these purposes.
