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.

@eliotberriot On the plus side for Gitlab, the source code is available so if Gitlab starts going bad, you can just self-host. I think that's the only reason to use gitlab over github. That's why I use Newsblur instead of the various other RSS readers as well, available source means self hosting is possible worst case.
