    > I figure at this point we'd get something of why this is happening.

    I've created a new discussion in their feedback repo asking for this, three major outages in a week could really do with a post-mortem:

  • JetBrains

    Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022. Take part in the Developer Ecosystem Survey 2022 by JetBrains and get a chance to win a Macbook, a Nvidia graphics card, or other prizes. We’ll create an infographic full of stats, and you’ll get personalized results so you can compare yourself with other developers.

  • Gitea

    Git with a cup of tea, painless self-hosted git service

    It seems there's a tracking issue here, but it seems stalled:

  • woodpecker

    Woodpecker is a community fork of the Drone CI system.

    Did you consider woodpecker instead of drone? It's basically an evolved fork of the OSS version.

  • Gitbucket

    A Git platform powered by Scala with easy installation, high extensibility & GitHub API compatibility

    Another self-hosted project in the space that i've seen was GitBucket, although it runs on the JVM (not necessarily a bad thing, just different from Go):

  • reactos

    A free Windows-compatible Operating System

    I don't recall ReactOS, or the creators of wireguard having 'multi million dollar budgets'. How is it that even projects like RedoxOS [0] are able to self-host on a GitLab instance using a subdomain, without giant budgets in the millions?

    You don't need a 'multi-million dollar budget' to self-host a git repo and may of these open-source projects have been doing so even before GitHub existed for years. Even if they did, there isn't an excuse left. At the very least I would expect something like what ReactOS is doing by having a self-hosted backup just in case GitHub goes down or vice-versa. [1]

    Looks like that is proving to be useful.



  • hub20

    Self-hosted payment gateway for Ethereum and any ERC20 token, integrates with Raiden for almost-zero fees.

    I think that parent means also things like CI, release repository, PR review, etc.

    These are not easily portable, but honestly is because of this lock-in that I prefer to use separate/independent tools. For my open source project [0], I am putting things on github and it is the link that give to most people, but in reality is just a mirror to the gitlab repository[1], which I use for CI and static page hosting, and the "project management" is done on Taiga [2]


  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
