Big news from yesterday.

Github (valued at $2,000,000,000) was purchased by Microsoft for just under $8,000,000,000.

Lots of chatter on Twitter about the acquisition.

Much satirical and negative:

 

The news initiated a tangible upswing in general interest of a competing cloud version control software: GitLab

And the volume traffic of migrating repos is very real:

There’s even a new hashtag #movingtogitlab for folks considering migrating their content from one platform to another just as a jerk knee reaction to the news of the acquisition.
