#Blender gets all their videos blocked worldwide by #YouTube. #Armory3D has their #Patreon page closed down and their backers refunded without any notice as to why. All the #FOSS projects hosted by #GitHub now have their hosting at the mercy of #Microsoft.
And this is just a few of the recent examples.
When is the #FOSS community going to learn that we need to create and run our own infrastructure as well as apps?
@Blort I've never understood why everyone was pushing they're code to github. Thought, git is decentralized by design
@GeekDaddy Yeah, that's sad. Unfortunately the FOSS, git based code hosting platforms seem to be dragging their feet on federation.
Personally I can't wait for #Gitea or #Gogs or #Gitlab or similar to federate via #ActivityPub. Personally I feel that will be a defining moment for the #FOSS community in taking back out sovereignty from #GitHub / #Microsoft.
