Discussion on: Are we giving GitHub too much control?

I wonder about control over what?

Any T&C’s that could change to change ownership etc. Would cause them to lose future business.

Being based entirely around git stops them from creating vendor lock, gitlab also keeps them in check with that.

Imo: Github offers less than Gitlab, but has the benefit of being almost synonymous with git for people new to the industry. The free tier is what gets them business in the long term.

I’m curious for any examples of something that would be a lot of work to transfer from github to any other git-repo hosting site.
