Bitcoin Core developer wants to abandon Github after $7.5b Microsoft acquisition

The acquisition of Github by Microsoft has caused quite a stir in the crypto community. Developers of Bitcoin are calling to abandon Github.

Github is an open source development platform where you can host and review code, manage projects and build software, and is used by the majority of the crypto projects. Now that Microsoft has bought the platform for $7.5 billion, some believe Github will be centralized. Developers are now looking to move to Github's competitor, Gitlab.

Wladimir (@orionwl), a Bitcoin Core developer, confirmed on Twitter that he thinks the Bitcoin repository should move away from Github, with an independent hosted infrastructure as the best option for the future. 

More developers and crypto enthusiasts have expressed concerns following the acquisition of Github by Microsoft.
