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.
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.
