@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.
