Если мы сейчас промолчим, наступит самое темное время для свободных людей. Россия погрузится в полный мрак. Мирная политическая деятельность в России станет невозможной.
@mcepl well, if you're using Gmail via imap/smtp, then I don't think you'd care very much, but the web interface is much more friendly to developers (properly threading patches, not breaking threads on subject renames, etc).
Just like cops are required to say "anything you say can be used against you in the court of law", any communication platform without end-to-end encryption should permanently display a similar warning: "all information collected about you on this platform can be used against you by criminals and law enforcement."
Especially since it's been demonstrated time and again that legalization does not lead to increased use.
@mattrose that's exactly the problem I want to highlight, though. Parts of project history die out as it migrates between forges. It can be seen as getting rid of irrelevant old junk, but to me it has the same effect as squashing old git history -- it's a lossy and irreversible operation.
@mattrose Git repository is just the final product. If they start using GH issues, code review, etc -- then it will effectively make the project locked-in inside GH and will make the cost of migrating out very high.
