    Phoronix: FreeDesktop.org Migrating To GitLab

    FreeDesktop.org that is home to the X.Org Server and Mesa development along with Wayland/Weston and other projects like LibreOffice and GStreamer is working on migrating their services to GitLab...

    Google Compute Engine? So is freedesktop going to be hosted by Google?

    I hate Google with all my heart...

      GOD. Yes! Welcome to the 21. century.
      I think GitLab looks ugly and bloated as hell, but it's an improvement at least.

            I enjoy GitLab for personal use, didn't have to fuss setting up a private git server myself, and unlimited participants in your own private servers (unlike GitHub where you have to pay for this very basic functionality)

              It looks like that only Wayland & Weston are moving to GitLab.

                The message says:

                As some of you have seen, freedesktop.org is migrating its Git hosting to GitLab
                See: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/freed...top/wikis/home

                Sounds like a complete move to me, which will happen over time:

                We have set up an instance of GitLab here to provide hosting to our member projects. We are planning to eventually migrate most freedesktop.org projects and services to run on top of GitLab, though this is still in extremely early stages.
                For now, you do not need to do anything. Eventually, we want to migrate all projects to using GitLab for code hosting, etc, and are looking at sunsetting many other services.

                We do not have a firm timeline for a full migration, and will be taking each project and service individually. We will make every reasonable effort to keep the services you currently rely on available for as long as possible, and will try to keep the transition as smooth as possible.

                If you would like to migrate, please file an issue on the project so we can walk through it with you.

                    This is good. I personally also use Gitlab. And I like this decision even more because gitlab is more open source than github is and perhaps will ever be. So go them!
