Github has really jumped the shark, they won't even display a proper ssh git address anymore...

@requiem Now is the age of hosting your own gitea... or community ones you trust.

The silos will never be your friend.

@thegibson agreed, I’ve went full-circle with this. What sent me back to GitHub was the need to collaborate with people who only use GitHub.

Damned network effect.

@requiem @TheGibson Both for issue tracking and code contributions?
Things like debbugs or the sourcehut equivalent only require an email address, which I'm sure github users also have.

@requiem @grainloom @TheGibson yeah I feel the same way. I made a Gitea to get around github’s stupid LFS rentseeking, but moving anything there I want collaboration on is just too much of a pain. Plus there’s no good CI solution for not-GitHub that doesn’t require self hosting my own windows/macOS box


@requiem @grainloom @TheGibson I have decided I’ll never give GitHub money, with the exception of when I went over the free LFS bandwidth limit and had to pay $5 to get my assets out of limbo which I’m still mad about
