I haven’t used Codeberg (a GitHub alternative), but their copy on front page strikes me.
No tracking. Your data is not for sale. All services run on servers under our control. No dependencies on external services. No third party cookies, no tracking. Hosted in the EU, we welcome the world.
Using external services for every last thing, you end up with your data being spread out amongst multiple (unknown to you) vendors, each with different security-implications / privacy policies / regulations all across the world. It makes your service more brittle (increased points of failure) and less secure (increased attack vectors). Seeing a service make this central to their product is refreshing.
Focusing on privacy and hosting in non-US owned/operated datacenters in the EU will be a competitive advantage when going up against the US tech companies in the future, if it isn’t already.
