Source Code Hosting

I deleted my GitHub account today.

I feel it is not a good idea to so heavily centralize the software development of the world on a single platform. This goes against the idea of an open, federated world wide web, against the decentralized nature (!) of Git itself and constitutes an antitrust issue as well (seen the owner of GitHub).

I recommend using the services offered by, or fall back to a self-hosted platforms such as GitLab or Gitea.
