@fabian What's bad with that decision?
@mlaunois It would be nice if free software would be developed with open-source tools and infrastructure. With GH they depend on a commercial provider.
@mlaunois ok, commercial is not the problem; but closed/proprietary is.
@fabian GitHub is not as closed as you think.
@mlaunois I what regards? I guess with some effort it's possible to export issues, wiki, comments etc. — Or you mean on a contract level? Special conditions for ASF?
@mlaunois it hasn't been a problem in the past. That's mostly true, afaik. But it might become one. See bitkeeper, sourceforge, for example.
@mlaunois and most OSS projects use it because it's convenient and easy. Not because it's the right™ thing to do. And admittedly it's a burden to run your own infra. I'm just disappointed that even the Big ones in FOSS (ASF, Moz) shy away from it.
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
