Brett has asked for feedback until Dec 1st, so here are my
quick random thoughts:
1) GitHub's UI is more polished than GitLab's.
2) GitHub pull requests are not universally liked (see famous Torvalds
rant "... pull requests and the online commit editing, are just
3) Attracting contributors? This was also an argument for the
svn -> hg change, but it did not happen IMO. On the contrary,
patches like https://bugs.python.org/issue3526 seem to be more
4) Personally, I probably would not have contributed to Python
if a GitHub account had been required back in 2012. But the
time may come when one is excluded entirely from any Open Source
contributions without a GitHub account...
5) The "do-nothing" option hasn't been mentioned: The current setup
is actually quite nice compared to almost 99% of other projects.
I like it better than both GitHub/GitLab.
