16 I support being where our potential contributors are. GitHub just
17 happens to be a network where many are using, do their work and know
18 the workflow.
19 I think we are big enough to not have to rely on it, to cater to
20 everyone, including those that refuse to use it on principle, but I
21 don't see anything wrong in making use of it for those that want to.
23 Though that requires volunteers to handle it. Fortunately we appear to
24 have such people right now. And ways to cater to those that don't use
25 GH well (e.g. automatic notifications not getting seen like for me) or
26 refuse to do so.
29 Some people are suggesting things like GitLab. I think that would be
30 great to look into and review suitability. But as something that would
31 replace our existing infrastructure - bugzilla, gitolite, CI hooks,
32 etc.
33 Otherwise it would be another place where users are - e.g. the
34 hosted service, just like; place where existing
35 users already have accounts, are used to doing it via there.
36 There might be some value setting it up for purely Merge Request
37 purposes as own instance, but without full switch, I don't see the pain
38 worth the gain. But if someone does the work and will manage it like GH
39 is now... sure.
