    Preface: I appreciate the sentiment, fuck Microsoft.

    1. Projects typically aren’t “hosted” on code repositories like GitHub.
    2. Because the underlying version control technology, git, is meant to be distributed - it’s super weird to draw that line in the sand. It’s like saying “show me TXT files written with SublimeText, I hate Notepad++!”
    3. I get that you might want to, like, judge a developer for using github? But, like… features are features. Build minutes are build minutes. If you fork a repo and use GitLab to manage it, does that make the project better?

      If you want to contribute to a project developed on GitHub, you need to have a GitHub account. So it does matter.

        Actually, you can send the diff patches by email/ pastebin/ gitlab/ etc. It’s up to the main developer to take your contribution seriously, given the level of annoyance you might be presenting. Same happens in the other direction, you can host your code on sourcehut, but many junior devs could be repelled by the old school ux.

          I dont get how that works, you mail those lines with all those

          +line
          +something
          -something
          

          And they can like transform that into git and have it work as an actual patch?

            Yes, it’s called a diff and git was designed with exactly this workflow in mind because it’s how the Linux kernel has been developed for decades. GitHub is just a new fangled way to social network-ize the git workflow.

      1. If it’s distributed through github, and there’s no push to move elsewhere by users and contributors, then it’s effectively hosted on/through github
      2. The analogy breaks down for collaborative projects, which is where the issues with github arise
      3. If their problem is with the project’s distribution method, presumably the answer is yes

      @shnizmuffin @Zen

      Issues, milestones, discussions, pull requests, build logs, they all stay on the chosen host. That host can then add specific conditions to creating accounts, or participating in the discussion, searching code etc. Such as force you to have a phone number in your account, otherwise you won’t be able to comment on issues. And all of these things might be locked in without a way to export and migrate to another host, so yes, it definitely matters where the project is hosted.

        It would be nice if platforms like Forgejo and gitlab could hook into some sort of review and issue tracking protocol that was built directly into git, like git-appraise. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like git appraise is actively developed.

    Forgejo itself is hosted on Codeberg, dogfooding itself
    Foot terminal emulator
    Tenacity Audacity fork
    xmobar status bar written in (and configured in) Haskell
    Redox Unix-like OS written in Rust
    RISC OS Open the original ARM OS, still seeing active development

    Gitlab:

    • brillo - Control the brightness of backlight and keyboard LED devices
    • Gammastep - Day/night gamma modifier that adjusts the color temperature of your screen.
    • Veloren - An open-world, multiplayer voxel RPG written in Rust

    Codeberg:

    • Fnott - Keyboard driven and lightweight notification daemon for wlroots. Better than mako (IMO).

    SourceHut:

    • Kanshi - Dynamic display configuration tool for wayland
    • Senpai - A modern, easy-to-use, terminal IRC client
    • Shotman - Fast and simple screenshot GUI written in Rust, for wayland.
    • wlr-randr - xrandr clone for wlroots compositors
    • wlrctl - Keyboard macros and window automation for wlroots compositors

      Not a shameless plug at all. Damn this is super nice! Thanks for posting this I’m definitely going to be looking into this project!

    “I hate Instagram tell me about popular celebrities using their own site/ Twitter/ Mastodon”… I think it’s putting the horses behind the cart. You want to use some code or look to a celeb pics? Then do it on wherever those stories were posted.

      GitHub was a social network even before Microsoft bought it, or the bot accounts boosting repos’ stars numbers.

    I wish the were a massive uptake of forgejo just to get federation of sourceforges implemented. Alternative sourceforges really need to band together because creating an account on every instance is an absolute no-go.

    Of of the osmocom stuff is not in GitHub, which includes open source cellular network stacks, and assorted radio stuff like Rtl-sdr drivers.
