So ... do we forgive GitLab and help them learn to be better ... or do we abandon them for smaller local alternatives run by people we know with organisations we trust to not want to sell us and our data?
They spammed me on Twitter, so I has opinions...
@yojimbo what did GitLab do?
@thegibson They told everyone that they were going to add third-party activity trackers to all their website UI. Then when everyone freaked at them, they decided that they were not going to.
Of course, they still need the analysis of 'who is using what feature', so they'll still implement the tracking JS, just hosting it in their namespace.
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.
