Github has really jumped the shark, they won't even display a proper ssh git address anymore...
@requiem still there for me, are you sure you're still logged in? Definitely didn't show up when I was logged out but was the default option when looking at one of my own repos.
@mansr @mike @requiem just in case it's useful to know, that unexpected logout was because of a security issue written about over here: https://github.blog/2021-03-08-github-security-update-a-bug-related-to-handling-of-authenticated-sessions/
@requiem Interesting. Just ran out and checked and I still have https, ssh, and cli.
Wonder if their doing some idiotic a/b testing.
@requiem Now is the age of hosting your own gitea... or community ones you trust.
The silos will never be your friend.
@thegibson agreed, I’ve went full-circle with this. What sent me back to GitHub was the need to collaborate with people who only use GitHub.
Damned network effect.
I’d love to never use GitHub again.
Hmm. Firewalls again.
The compassion fatigue thing is a good point.
My current approach is to keep my Github account but minimize its use and both have a nice little note about ICE in my bio and at least mention that I'd prefer communicating on a better platform when I'm on an issue tracker.
For contributing to other people's code I just find an email address in the git log and send a patch.
The same approach might not work if you need to use it a lot, but keeping some of the pressure up (like bringing alternatives up on issue trackers in a non-offputting way) could help dismantle their power.
@requiem @grainloom @TheGibson yeah I feel the same way. I made a Gitea to get around github’s stupid LFS rentseeking, but moving anything there I want collaboration on is just too much of a pain. Plus there’s no good CI solution for not-GitHub that doesn’t require self hosting my own windows/macOS box
I much prefer to support that project than to use GH just because "everyone else is" and most are too lazy to take the 30 seconds needed to configure their mail host in their ~/.gitconfig.
If people actually want to collaborate with our projects, they'll do so. So far, it hasn't been a huge blocker for us.
@requiem Looks like it might be possible to write a filter for a .gitconf file that automatically converts it.
The fossil website is just one such a repository. https://fossil-scm.org
(git import/export works flawless)
@sh So do I. I've used it for a lot of projects over the years and love having all the Github-like stuff in one utility, for everyone using it, and it's all kept in the repo.
@requiem Just one more reason to abandon ship.
I'm lazy here; I have been wanting to get away from GitHub for a while now, but I keep getting distracted.
@requiem i still see it. maybe they do indeed a/b tests to see if people care
so, contact support and complain
or just watch them take over open source...
this is probably the next step to claim that they invented git. "it's an outdated github client. use gh now"
@requiem I can see SSH again when logging in. But still...
embrace: adopt open technology/standard
extend: implement custom extension to the standard/technology (wait till it has large marketshare)
extingguish: make your extended technology incompatible with the open standard <-- we are entering this phase
vscode is next btw.
@requiem Strange, I still get it.
@requiem to someone who doesn't have an account a clone using ssh won't work (and the site doesn't "know" if one has SSH keys until they login). I do think they could still show it "disabled" to show the possibility exists.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
