Reconsider hosting on github?

Post by dsteuer » Tue Nov 03, 2020 8:36 am

Hi all,

the latest happenings around youtube-dl shows all the problems with hosting on a monopoly-owned, US-based
service. Imho free software should run away from being dependent on decisions of those huge companies as fast as
possible. Personally I moved my projects away the day the MS aquisition of github was announced.

There is a very nice service https://codeberg.org in Germany for example which seems to resonate perfectly with FOSS.
(I'm in no way affiliated, I'm not even using it, cause I only found out about them recently and my projects have a home already :-) )
I'm sure there are others, may be better ones out there.

It's of course not my choice to make, but I'd like to see flatpress move to a "more free" environment!

Just my 2¢.

Regards
Detlef

Hi, thanks for suggesting this. I fully understand the motivation. Unfortunately, time is very rare at the moment, and I'd rather improve the FlatPress software itself as good as my time allows it. But I'll keep the general idea in mind, maybe there are going to be opportunities in the future.

All the best,
Arvid
