So, for everyone's reference, there's been lots of discussion on this at

and #userops on freenode

and related to and #freepost on freenode

There's already a site made by some people dedicated 100% to free
software. It's and it uses Gogs (MIT licensed)
with plan to fork to AGPL if substantial changes are made or are
necessary if Gogs goes in a direction we don't like. They started that
site coincidentally about a week before the Gitorious announcement.

There's also discussion about supporting and hosting Kallithea, which
is GPL and a Software Freedom Conservancy project.

There may be value in a GitLab fork, but I'm not sure it's the way to
go (not sure either way). The NotABug folks claim to have considered
GitLab and decided that it wasn't going to scale as well as Gogs and
had too much reference to proprietary stuff in the design (I guess
they mean third-party login and other stuff like that) which would be
extra work to deal with.

FWIW, I agree with the view someone else presented that GitLab would
itself be more acceptable if it had a distinct site / name for the
community project vs the proprietary enterprise edition. As long as
the community edition is presented as the lesser version of a single
freemium product, we can't really endorse it as is, although I will
keep saying that their efforts to participate and listen to our
concerns are very notable and distinct from what we experience from
most projects that otherwise aren't 100% dedicated free software
projects. I could imagine GitLab at least recognizing the value of
maintaining a friendly relationship of sorts to our community and
avoiding antagonism.

Anyway, GitBull is interesting… I do really want to see collaboration
among everyone about how to best handle this situation overall.

Hi LibrePlanet Hackers!

So as promise to Alimiracle, is born.

Alimiracle I have give you the ssh access code as you can see the server
