I just found out that @codeberg ia doing custom domain for pages. So you can host your pages on Codeberg and use your own domain. Lot of people stuck with GitHub because it provided pages. Now a lot of people can move to Codeberg and become free from GitHub. Amazing news.

@arh @codeberg I'm already using Codeberg Pages with my domain. It's just what I needed to leave GitHub. I am free!

@arh @codeberg It's still a bit awkward that you need to push your built artifacts to a branch in a repository for that.

@arh @codeberg recently started using it myself. it works well!

@arh @codeberg just set up one as a test at a bit ago to see what the steps were like. really glad they added this function

@arh thanks was just practicing some hand typed html cause it had been a while

Yeah but didn't codeberg have a huge outage recently? Stability means something. If you're hosting a project and someone needs to do a pull request to install your project to recover from a disaster or business continuity event and the service is down that's a huge issue.

@gme are you implying that @codeberg is not stable and GitHub is?

I wasn't implying anything, but certainly the integrity and availability of a service should be a factor when choosing to use one.

@gme I agree with that completely. And that’s a very good point.
I believe donating to @codeberg will help them upgrade their infrastructure to prevent these issues, but billions of dollars from Microsoft couldn’t (as they too had outages), so…

@arh @gme @codeberg seems like an interesting alternative to GitLab Pages too, what with GitLab's recent plan (that they abandoned) to delete repos that are not active for over a year

if people cared about this sort of stability, they wouldn't be using centralized services to begin with. git-ssb, for one, can't be brought down, taken over or wiped out. anyone who cared about long-term survivability of their git repos should at least maintain and advertise a mirror there.
What you see as long-term survivability I see yet another avenue for exploit. Supply chain attacks are real, and there's nothing more than the adversaries want to exploit is source code for popular projects on vulnerable infrastructure.
what kind of vulnerability do you envision in mirrorring data in highly replicated, strong cryptographic hash verified and effectively immutable storage?
A vulnerability with the service itself that could allow for unauthorized code changes.
maybe learn a little about SSB before making yourself look ignorant any further?
