I Am Moving Away from GitHub

April 8, 2020
GitHub Tech Censorship

Please see the disclaimer.

As of today, I am moving all of my personal projects, including my Yzena projects, away from GitHub and onto a server that I administer.

There are three reasons for this.

First, GitHub will block access to projects because of trade sanctions.

Second, GitHub will inexplicably block access to projects when an author calls someone a cruel, crude, and rude name. This is not sensitive; it is authoritarian.

Third, GitHub’s server started not letting me push to my projects anymore. I keep getting an error that says

Too many authentication failures

However, when I follow GitHub’s instructions to test my ssh keys, it works. I can only assume that something else is going on, whether borne of malice or incompetence.

I contacted GitHub support, and suddenly, I could push again, even though I did not get any reply.

Basically, GitHub cannot be trusted with my code anymore. That’s why I moved.

Is It Even Worth Working on FOSS Anymore?

With companies taking advantage of Free and Open Source Software far more often than they contribute back, and harming users in the process, is it even worth working on anymore?
