    Phoronix: Mesa Begins Its Transition To Gitlab

    Following the news from earlier this month that FreeDesktop.org would move its infrastructure to Gitlab, the Mesa3D project has begun the process of adopting this Git-centered software...

    No more fetching Mesa for me... (because it's on Google-hosted instance)

      A big topic under discussion in that thread is bug reporting (Gitlab vs Bugzilla).

          It's self hosted Gitlab and it's FOSS. Does Github allow self hosted instances?

            yes, github enterprise allows on premises instances.
            The license is not FOSS though.

            "cgit and anongit will not be orphaned: they remain as push mirrors so are updated simultaneously with GItLab pushes"

              It's also very expensive while Gitlab is free.
              And Github does not have CI, have a much less powerful issue tracker and less powerful features overall.

              Github shines with its community but that aspect is completely irrelevant when self hosting. They are each others difference, Gitlab also have a hosted service but that is a joke with downtimes, slowdowns and zero community.

              Hosted -> Github, no question
              Self hosted -> Gitlab, no question

                Brilliant, I like Gitlab.
                Free private repo's is great.

                  This is not gitlab.com, but a self-hosted instance. Gitlab is free software, which is great. The guys at gitlab are great!

                  It's a hassle to deploy, though, and quite ressource hungry. If that's overkill, you could try to self-host with gitea, cgit, "git http-backend", or even without web frontend: "git http-backend" or plain ssh/filesystem.

                  Edit: just realized that you could also obtain free private repos on freedesktop's gitlab as well... I wonder how that will play out?

                    You are wrong.

                    GitLab is Open Source, but not Free Source.

                    - Community Edition is more "free-like". A MIT license, I think to remember. But it's Open Source, of course in MIT/BSD style.

                    - Enterprise Edition(s) has source code available (with a lot of protection code that you need to break if you want to be "evil") but with a very restrictive license.
