@njoseph wouldn't you say this app scratches developers itches exclusively? To me it looks like a "newbie" tool got another "pro" feature.
Version control systems are not exclusively meant for software development. Many authors and bloggers use VCS tools to keep their manuscripts/drafts versioned.
My blog and its theme, dotfiles etc. are in git repositories.
Benefits to self-hosting git remotes:
1. Your private repositories are not stored on other people's computers.
2. Changes in international trade laws doesn't suddenly lock you out from your own repositories (e.g. GitHub and Iran).
@njoseph Defaults matter. Currently FreedomBox ships with a very limited subset of available Debian packages. It does not look good to add apps EXCLUSIVELY! for developers. It indeed communicates the very problem we should be fixing: Available free software scratches pro-itches but the less skilled masses just can't use them. You live in a bubble if you think the optional nature of apps makes it all right. Remember: by default *no* app is installed.
