they are hiding behind some DDoS-protection bouncers which force me
to identify dozends of bicycles, zebra-crossings, boats and airplanes
before being able to access anything there (and hence also requires
surely also collects metadata about their users).
Somehow this isn't a problem with github, I can always access it even
in Torbrowser, the same is true for Sourcehut.
That being said, I also see Sourcehut as the clear winner and I'm also
against migrating more things to Github.
