#Github #Copilot gives an idea why #Microsoft paid so much for Github. They were after data: Tons of food for their AI, millions of contributors that now 'work' for MS for free.
You publish your code under GPLv3, even AGPLv3? So what? The AI learns from your code and uses it to generate code that is possibly proprietary. Does #GPL forbid this practice? (I don't think so)
That's the M$ way to break copyright law.
It's time for alternatives like @codeberg .
@welt Yes I know 😉 . But as far as I know the social networking features like issue tracking and discussions are not federated. And that's in the end why I'm using something like Gitea at all. Otherwise I would just use plain git without any Web UI.
Honestly I never tried the mail as suggested in the article. But somehow I just cannot imagine how it can replace the structure that an issue tracker can give. Correct me if I'm wrong.
