I apologise for how long this reply has taken to come out, my week has been hectic
and I've had to learn to stem my F/LOSS work when I'm running out of energy.
Gitano is fairly static at the moment, except for your excellent contributions to
luxio, it tends to be at the bottom of the list for energy :(

I understand your reticence, there's been a lot of that with the recent TOS
changes. Someone's gotta pay eventually and while many people are comfortable
being the product, a lot (such as yourself at a guess, and myself to a lesser
extent) are not.
For what it's worth I was able to setup basic CI for Luxio on
running in both OpenBSD and FreeBSD in about 5 or 10 minutes.
That is pretty interesting. Sourcehut looks a little "boutique" but at least
they're upfront about their pricing structure which makes a little more sense.
We should consider other CI solutions, such as the one Lars is
and if they're not ready yet, let's help make them ready instead of relying
on some corporations we likely cannot trust to have our best interests at
My feeling is that if we wanted to move to something in the short-term which
provides CI etc, then soucehut is a good option. I think Lars' work on Ick
has been paused until he gets a lot of underlying services written better,
so we shouldn't rely on that.
On that basis I'm prepared to consider sourcehut. Would every contributor
(admittedly just you and me right now, and primarily you) need to pay for a
sourcehut account; or would it be the case that the project would pay for an
account and anyone else would then be able to contribute? If the latter then
I'm prepared to sponsor an account and consider moving luxio to it so we can
see how that feels.
If you agree that it's worthwhile, please start a fresh thread where you show
what you managed to do for the BSDs and we'll go from there.
