On the other hand, that's only going to get worse over time - even more links, even more forks, even more commit messages.
And maybe Microsoft won't fuck up GitHub, but sensing this vendor lockin now, what would happen if they do?
So it's probably a band-aid that has to be ripped sooner rather than later. 🤔
Got approved for a GitLab Ultimate license so that's sorted (although I haven't received it yet)
@valerauko It is self-hosted. It's a license for a self-hosted software.
@valerauko If it's on my domain and my hardware then what github-like argument can you make?
@Gargron GitLab has push mirroring for enterprise edition — does your Ultimate License also support it? https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/workflow/repository_mirroring.html
(Otherwise, a mirror can be just another git remote that is pushed to, and that can even be automated.)
@garrett I think push mirroring is in CE too
@Gargron Oh, nice! GitLab's been moving more and more Enterprise things into CE. Great to hear!
I guess the docs just need updating (just like every software project, ever).
