Note: The following relates specifically to only bug reporting, not repo hosting, source code management, etc…
Or, if you’re like me, and you want to actively help the developers, improve the software/backend frameworks, and as a result help to give most users a better experience overall with the various programs and software they know and love to use, all within the open source community where we’re all just trying our best working together, then use both Github/Gitlab.
In a practical sense, boycotting a platform doesn’t help the end users if most developers still plan to use said platform anyways, so really it’s a disservice to users more than anything.
For others reading this, specifically if you come across any bugs, please do your best to report them regardless of the platform the developers have chosen to use as this approach helps us all out as users. For the time being neither Github/Gitlab are going anywhere anytime soon, so we need to accept them both for the time being.
Refusing to contribute on a platform, which could only benefit lots of users sure is an odd hill to die on. But you are entitled to your preferences, so at least you’ll always have that.
