If this is simply a matter of moving our infrastructure from Pagure to Gitlab
Well, it is a matter of moving, but simply? You have to adjust a lot of details.
but both are still hosted on private Fedora Servers,
decided to give up to host it’s repository and had outsourced it to a commercial service
provider, gitlab in this case. You will continue zu use your FAS account to login to the
gitlab hosted Fedora repos. The Fedora Account is kind of „shadowed“ in gitlab.
Pagure will remain available, at least for some time, but obviously more or less
unmaintained. The details are a bit unclear to me.
I think it is decidedly unfortunate to practically force Fedora contributors to entrust
their data to yet another commercial Internet shark. It may be OK for now, but if gitlab
is reasonably successful, it's only a matter of time before some tech giant, possibly
even some Russian or Chinese state-owned corporation or even worse Oracle, takes it over.
But the discussion and the decision is done and closed. The technical features of gitlab
are too tempting and our Fedora techies obviously behave no much differently than any
other artless Internet user who still thinks Facebook and Co are "social media".
All ideas of freedom, self-determination, privacy, locked in etc then turn into
"social chatter" and nice decoration for the front page. As far as I can tell
after the first impression, Debian has, unfortunately once again, found a cleverer
solution - or just better hidden. </rant off>
Has the Fedora Docs team moved over to Gitlab? I believe that is
where I first saw the suggestion, to have a browser editor to make it easier for new
Yes, docs started to migrate.
