By all means, #movingtogitlab-dot-com does not solve the problem GitHub has (centralization), and moving to a privately hosted GitLab re-introduces the problem GitHub mostly solved (separation).

#GitPub is trying to solve this problem by defining a federation protocol for git services: github.com/git-federation/gitp

If you're concerned about #Microsoft buying #GitHub (and you should be) please do not simply move to GitLab.com (the hosted #GitLab instance), it also runs on MS servers, (Azure) - always self-host GitLab, or if it's too heavy, go with Gitea.

Whatever you do, do not simply move from one silo to another.

Isn't it ironic how the largest open source code platform (GitHub) is itself proprietary and closed source?

Default eelo mail application will be based on K9-mail. We have started to work on its UI to make it more attractive and simple
