Due to the recent takeover of Github by Microsoft, I will be moving all of my repositories from there to Gitlab. For the Interactive Fiction community, this includes the following:


The new URLs are as follows:


For those of you who have collaborated with me on any of these projects, I encourage you to get an account at Gitlab with the same username that you have at Github. That'll make the switchover much easier.

Just moving your development activity, or deleting your github repos?

I'm not sure yet.

I don't really understand the massive migration. It's not like Gitlab has the cleanest owners, being as their biggest venture capital funder is Google. Still, it's good that there's some heathly competition in the code hosting space.

As bad as Google has become since its founding, I find it a lot cleaner than Microsoft.

In case you decide to leave, I have reserved https://gitlab.com/i7 for "Friends of Inform7".

One can assume that your new repos's url are the same with "gitlab" instead of "github" ?

Correct. The Inform6unix repo will require some tweaks once the mass migration has calmed down to account for the need to import from two other repos.

I found the news of Microsoft buying out GitHub disturbing, but I'm willing to take a wait and see attitude. They promised not to wreck it. When their words and actions stop matching, I'll find a different host for my repos.

Given their two latest disasters, Skype and Nokia, I'm not inclined to believe they've learned any sort of positive lesson.

While I'm glad to see people finally moving on from Github, I always hoped it would be because they were moving on from Git. ;)

I'm pretty happy with Bitbucket - it supports Mercurial, and it integrates nicely with JIRA, which is free for established OSS projects.
