Wish it was GitLab instead of GitHub which M$ now own!
But GitLab are just company hosted github. M$ still owns the software, it's not run by them is all.
Having done some more research GitLab is dancing with a different devil, Google!
Gitlab shows a lot of interest in cybersecurity companies, as well:
In March 2015, GitLab Inc. acquired Gitorious, a competing Git hosting service. Gitorious had at the time around 822,000 registered users. Users were encouraged to move to GitLab, and the Gitorious service was discontinued in June 2015.
On March 15, 2017, GitLab Inc. announced the acquisition of Gitter. Included in the announcement was the stated intent that Gitter would continue as a standalone project. Additionally, GitLab Inc. announced that the code would become open source under an MIT License no later than June 2017.
In January 2018, GitLab Inc. acquired Gemnasium, a service that provided security scanners with alerts for known security vulnerabilities in open-source libraries of various languages. The service was scheduled for complete shut-down on May 15. Gemnasium features and technology was integrated into GitLab EE and as part of CI/CD.
They acquired a couple of competitors, removing the competition.
I do not understand what Security Companies have to do with remote cloud serving. If that portfolio was more diverse, it might not stand out like a sore thumb.
GitLab is well-known for their CI/CD capabilities, and one important step is to continuously scan new code that is committed to version control for known vulnerabilities, outdated packages, etc.
I'm not sure what we're talking about but I would prefer Codeberg instead of the above. It used to use Gitea, which is a software that aims to be a GitLab/GitHub replacement with self-hosting capabilities. Gitea changed their license recently and Codeberg decided to fork the project into Forgejo.
Big Tech is not the only threat to us. Don't think everything in the world can be divided into friend and foe.
