    I’m sure you all know that Microsoft has bought github.
    So, I have moved our git repos over to GitLab.

    antiX-Linux

    The ones at github will stay there for a while.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    Yeah. I read some of the reactions at the MX forum thread. I had to pop some popcorn in the microwave for that thread.

    LOL, Roky! I respect the decision to move the Git code; there are plenty of alternatives out there that are free, including Gitlab.
    I’m not terribly concerned myself about what Microsoft may or may not DO with the GitHub, but there are always free alternatives available, which we’re taking advantage of.

    Popcorn, huh? I make a pretty good version of popcorn using Coconut Oil and pink salt – healthier alternatives to “the usual”, just like our healthy Git alternative! (grin)

    got my gitlab account 🙂

    the only thing I miss so far is the repositories filter on the github organization landing page. makes looking through repositories easier.

    “filter on the github organization landing page”

    We are probably expected to create “groups” and assign each project into a group.
    Is the set of features related to the term “group” identical to “organization”? I don’t know the answer to that.

    By virtue of registering an account (username: blue), namespace /blue is created.
    When blue creates a new “group” (groupname: spearfish), the /spearfish namespace is created and it’s landing page will immediately contain a filter box, even with no projects yet populated in it.

    If you import projects one-by-one, I expect you can choose destination group for each at time of import.
    Oops, I didn’t think to do that, and all imports landed in “personal projects”. No filterbox is displayed on the personal projects page.
    ok, to move a project into a group, Settings >>> Advanced settings >>> Transfer project (select a new namespace)

    My vote would be to host our own with MX.
    However I have not had time to look into the setup procedure for gitlab ce and if in anyway it would still be tied to “other sources”

    to understand seeing MSFT in the whois, read this https://venturebeat.com/2018/04/06/why-and-how-gitlab-abandoned-microsoft-azure-for-google-cloud/ then click link in that article, leading to the gitlab April blog post announcement

    ah, that well may be.

    but my (and others) personal githubs also have a filter. super handy, maybe they will add it.
