FWIW, trisquel started using gitlab many years ago, when it was not
nearly as libre-friendly as it is today, so you really can not credit
it for that reason - it was also before pagure existed - i think if
that decision had to be made again today, that gitlab is not the
best choice for software freedom concerns - if any of the
full-featured, self-hosted web forges should be encouraged above
others, pagure (GPLv2+) and coding-team (AGPL) appear to have the most
libre-conscious developers, and most of their sites' functionality works
with javascript completely disabled (good engineering, yes Aaron?)

however, i would not expect to see trisquel or any gitlab users change
any time soon, mostly because it is very difficult to get your data out
of those forges - almost all of them have an inherent "vendor lock-in"
effect - pagure is the only one that makes complete migrations simple,
which is the best reason to favor it IMHO
