I foresee a great future... for Gogs [1], Gitea [2], Gitlab [3] and other Github-alternatives. I was a late and somewhat reluctant adopter of Github as I don't like the idea of centralising so much of the free software infrastructure and putting it in the hands of one company, even a supposedly 'friendly' company like Github. I mirror everything I do on Github to a local Gitea-instance as a backup and exit strategy for when Github becomes a liability. If these talks go through and Microsoft does take over the latter will become true and I'll remove my accounts there.
