@goodspeed Kind of already, I use Gitea for personal stuff, but I still contribute to projects on GitHub
@goodspeed "plan" -- sure. First step in the plan is to make a plan. Errr…
I remember when I had very happily moved to Bitbucket. And then they lost my account. At which point I just gave up with them.
@goodspeed I only use it for contributions to other projects, my personal projects are somewhere else
@goodspeed the problem is contributing to projects on #github you must have an account, no?
How can that problem be solved? Does anybody here believe Github would introduce #federation willingly?
#gitlab, #gitea and other sourceforges would have to federate to force github to do so. Until then, I fear that my github account has to stay.
@loveisgrief You can send your patch to one of the maintainers (in e-mail). Thus you can avoid to use github.
@goodspeed Is there an alternative? Github mostly replaced SourceForge. I go to Github to find OS projects. It will need a popular replacement for me to go somewhere else.
@goodspeed The only thing holding me is probably GitHub Actions. And its being free for public repos.
@goodspeed Can't completely. The Rust package repository Crates.io depends on GH for authentication, but at least I can move my repos off.
