Re: Gitlab is bad as well, looking for an exit
GitLab is not open source, it's "open core". Meaning the company switched from generous to milking the community and users. Now you have to fear the next version, it will touch you with a cold hand, wanting $$$ from you so that you can update, as suddenly another part of the former open source software switched to be paid-only "addon" - that's called "open core" and many VC (venture capital) baked open source software goes down that road (and often die a slow dead). That's why it's so important that a "real open source community" is around and supports the open source project, and fork it in case such things happen. Has GitLab a healthy open source community, I doubt it. The good thing, other competitive alternatives are completely written by open source devs with no company involved, and their software is a factor of ten faster than the slow ruby code too.
