So with all this "ditching the rug of the meritocracy" and code of conduct bullshit going on, I'm really starting to feel like using Github was a mistake. This stuff just waits to be abused.
I chose it, because of its popularity. That is to say, I didn't look alternatives in the first place because Github is renowned and does everything I need. I'm writing my first game and I only plan on open sourcing parts of it after release. Logically I use a private repository for this (smallest plan on Github). The tools I write to assist me in development however, are open sourced.
I'm going to be honest here: I'm writing these tools for myself and share them out of the kindness in my heart. If a hipster-dipshit were to throw a tantrum about something I've said, me being a #GamerGate supporter, something someone somehow affiliated with the project said/did, etc. (read: unrelated stuff), I'd stop open sourcing them.
I will NOT deal with bullshit like #941. I've got better things to do with my time.
So, where should I go? I heard GitLab went down the shitter too. Here's what I need:
- git as VCS
- unlimited open source repositories
- closed repositories (doesn't need to be free, just reasonably priced, see Github)
- site about business/merit rather than progressiveness/hipster-cred
I heard BitBucket is supposed to be quite good feature-wise.
