(I guess I should write a slightly longer answer to this and related questions since this seems to pop up regularly.) TL;DR: SVN works. Why don't you use git, you can do so right now (either one

Sorry for doubleposting but I felt like my last comment was a bit harsh, @WhiteTreePaladin :sorry:

Yes, switching to another revision system like GIT on our server is an option, but GitHub is not IMO.

And, yes, I also don't think GetHub is exceptionally bad right now. But just a slight change in direction in the management can make a service like this basically useless for us.

I don't have anything against Microsoft, and they haven't been bad lately. I use the Github repo because we don't have our own hosted git repo. I definitely agree that it's preferable to host it ourselves instead of relying on Github, and I'd gladly switch to a WFG hosted git repo. :)

What about gitlab?

However it's not GitHub itself to blame here, but US government.

IIRC we ourselves have a team member from Iran.

I don't think we do. (Lost communication pretty much immediately after attempting to join - due to issues in the country at the time.)

GitLab is the software which allows you to host a git repository. GitLab has features like a web interface with issue tracking and merge request management. GitLab is used by the Debian project and FramaGit.

GitLab.com is a service by the company GitLab Inc. GitLab.com is similar to GitHub as you can create repositories for free. However, you can do the same on FramaGit which is part of the french non profit organization FramaSoft.

In short:

  • Git -> distributed version control tool
  • GitLab -> Web based self hosting software frontent for Git
  • GitLab.com -> GitLab hosted by GitLab Inc. (company)
  • FramaGit -> GitLab hosted by FramaSoft (ngo)

Further info git does not handle art assets gracefully or other binary blobs as git calls them too many of them and both GitHub and GitLab start charging you money to use there service.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Wait, so at some point in time, Github gives you an "ultimatum" if you have too many .pngs? "Pay us or your repo is gone", that sort of thing?

If that's the case, then I'll delete my repo by myself. No need to wait for them to do it. I didnt't really have a lot stuff anyway.

Git != github 

Git = versionning technology

Github = website hosting git repository.

Don't worry about it 0 A.D. has a mirror. If we had too many pngs we'd know :)

From what I am aware, this would only happen if you would use their service and not a self-hosted version of it.

If you do, I don't think you would face such issues.

 

I understand not using GitHub at this point - I do however believe they will be here for many many years, but that is another story - but at this time, having a self-hosted GitLab CE instance would make wonders for the project, having everything that's needed in one single place.

What is currently blocking WFgames to move to a self-hosted solution like this?

Well we have a lot of art files which will take more space than SVN, because there is actually a big svn encompassing the  repo and three others which are literally full of stuff.

Also we currently use the combo arcanist/Phabricator which allows us to use either git or svn seamlessly. Ideally we'd have a better git mirror which is something @Itms proposed sometime ago. I'll let him give more details about that :)
