Moving Away from GitHub

Tags: GitHub, sourcehut

Over the past few hours I did some serious cleaning up on my GitHub account, I basically removed every single original repository I had. I still need GitHub in order to contribute to some projects, so my forks are kept.

For people trying to find my missing repositories, I added a profile README to direct people to my sourcehut instead.

There were many reasons why I ditched GitHub, a couple are detailed below:

I will also be retiring git.ryne.moe (as a code archive) in order to reduce friction while working. I plan on making changes so I can have it pull my changes on sourcehut automatically, but that will come later. If you’re wondering why did I choose sourcehut over my own GitLab, it’s mostly because I don’t want to lose everything due to my own incompetence ;-)
