I’ve read the new policy change, which all are bounded by US laws ( U.S. GOVERNMENT MATTERS) . Probably DMCA also must be there .
If someone made some reverse engineered of some drivers of Nvidia or wireless or apps, we may be blocked, that what subscription is saying.
As US bounded laws, Github users from Crimea, Iran, and other places were blocked, If this happens to my country will I will be blocked.
The focus here is on centralisation onto a commercial service, running proprietary code, subject to the laws of a single country, that already has a monopoly on code hosting for free and open source software, and the free software community’s wilfully ignoring the issues therewith.
GitHub had a contract with United States Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) an ethical hot-topic at present after similar disputes with config management software Chef. Is our gitlab also bounded by these things.

I am ok because of spam things. My IP address, cookie, hardware identifier, mobile id . I am little bit dissapoint afterwards
We may share each of the categories of personal information we collect with the types of third parties described below, for the following business purposes.
May be third party would be Google, or facebook some (freedom not respecting company ) also some NSA ,that tracks every movement in Gitlab.
6 . And several other notes…
Although I feel safe than using some Proprietary software, but I feel not safe because of these things and tonnes of other.
Why wouldn’t gitlab be diversified and Internationalize the use from all country?
This is great idea if you tier with most of the countries directly decentralized, both for income and freedom.
, instead of only on US and its pat riot acts?
