What are people's thoughts on transitioning away from GitHub?
I personally have given GitHub a free pass up to now due to the benefits
they were providing to the FOSS community. Following the Microsoft
buyout I no longer wish to do so and have moved all repositories I
control to GitLab. I am considering closing my GitHub account altogether
and will be considerably more likely to contribute to GitLab projects in
future. In this i'm sure that I am not alone.
I also think that Geany, as a Free and Open Source Software program,
should be hosted on a FOSS repository management site. The same open
source arguments that we use to promote Geany apply here.
At the very least I think the gitlab.com/geany project domain should be
claimed and mirrored.
