Pleased to see this pissed HN off. How you know you're onto something.
@joeyh ah, sad but true… (good post, by the way)
@joeyh HN has about six flavors of people there, lol. Many who probably agree with you.
I think like the GitHub wiki is even technically probably a Git repo... just a hidden/unreachable one. It stores changes in a very Git-like fashion.
@ocdtrekkie Github wiki, gists, user pages are all stored in git repos. Rest isn't. I don't know about the equivilants on Gitlab.
Also, https://github-backup.branchable.com/ pulls all the data into a branch (and backs up all repos you star or fork); I wrote it 6 years ago partly to demonstrate feasibiity, partly to not lose information when the inevitable github backlash happened.
@joeyh That's pretty handy! I'm not leaving GitHub (and think the hysteria is hilarious), but am always pretty big on good data export tools.
@joeyh Looks like you've upset LWN readers as well.
@liw yeah well, good.
