This is a note to people moving their repositories blindly to Gitlab.org: do you know Google is actually a huge investor in Gitlab?

The issue is not about Microsoft buying Github. The issue is about centralization and silos.

You do not solve that by moving your data from one silo to another.

You solve that by relying on small providers you can trust, or by becoming a provider yourself.

I guess you need to choose your silo these days. Self-hosting appears better, but in reality just appeals to a different (and arguably more frightening) set of providers.

Hosting stuff in AWS is appealing to a much more terrifying entity than Google, imo. The companies that we lease lines to the internet from are also quite terrifying.
