Codeberg

a free home for free projects

16:2015/11/2019

Collaboration platforms like SourceForge, GitHub, and GitLab enabled and facilitated the development and organization of free software projects.
But as developers of free software we fell into a trap – we poured invaluable source code, documentation and last not least a huge and steady stream of data about our personalities, interests and social networks into proprietary platforms.
These platforms are no charities, they operate to fulfill the commercial objectives of their founders and owners, outside of our control. They are valued and sold for billions of dollars.
Codeberg is trying to fix that. The nonprofit Codeberg e.V. has been founded as independent non-government organization to launch and build a free home for Free and Open Source Software.
