Boosts appreciated!

@dachary @activitypub
Congratulations !
I think GitLab is a good move because it has nice UI, full features, and it's self-hostable.

I wouldn't bother with Github, it's proprietary and a moving target and they'll probably break whatever API hooks you use as soon as the project gets traction.

@cjd @dachary Even assuming it's successful, whether to interoperate with a dominant competitor is a tricky call. It depends which direction one believes the gravitational pull will be.

Facebook managed to siphon users from MySpace, but they had a lot of resources to put into directing the flow.

@clacke @cjd Very well put. There is no way to predict how it will turn out 🔮 But it's worth a shot.

And for me it's a matter of survival as a Free Software developer.

I do not have a GitHub account for ethical reasons and I feel the pain daily 😅
