GitHub Evacuation Guide project wiki
Welcome to the new home of the GitHub Evacuation Project! Good to see you back.
If you're wondering why we moved to GitLab, read this
Our work in the original GitHub repo was a flurry of raw ideas and todos in reaction to news that came as a huge and shocking surprise. Now we are going to be a bit more structured and focused on producing a credible and reliable Evacuation Guide. There is a huge demand for it.
Please read the Evacuation Guide's CONTRIBUTING.md.
There is no Code of Conduct. I trust you to be kind and respectful.
You are actually in the GitHub Evacuation Guide sub-project. You can navigate up to the overall GitHub Evacuation Project home to see the other sub-projects. This Guide will take the most collaboration, the most teamwork, so I'm directing focus on it. But we will also start working on the movement aspects. There is a little bit about it in the movement README.
If there is a GitHub alternative that you are a particular advocate for:
- Check to see if an Issue already exists for it. If not, open one with the title of the form "evaluate X" (e.g. "evaluate Gitea").
- Create a markdown file for it under the Guide
optionsdirectory, using the same headings as the other ones. If you think the headings should change, go ahead and do it your way and create an Issue so we can discuss. We'd prefer all the evaluations to follow the same format.
I've made the Issues in the original GitHub repo visible again, so you can go there and copy your previous work from there to the appropriate place here.
This wiki is for notes and resources that the team can share with each other. Feel free to add pages. But if the new info is a TODO or a discussion that needs to happen, create an Issue instead.
The Scorecard may be the most visible if not most important thing we will produce. We will back it up with details, but many people will jump to the score card to get an idea which option makes sense for them. If we do the assessments professionally and objectively, it will gain the kind of credibility that the EFF's scorecards do.
