To add to what Brian said, in France (Cocorico !), we have an association
called Framasoft who promotes free software. And they provide some web
services like data storage or in our case an instance of Gitlab to host

You can found more informations here:


It might help.

Have a good day

> Hi All -
>   You may know, I strongly object to using Github.com as the repository
> for the MASTER copy of an OSGeo.org project. So, I did some research, and
> installed my own git server.. in greek the name is Καλλιθέα (Kallithéa) [0]
>  It works very well - it has many of the "swap branch and compare" features
> that GitHub.com has.. and .. it is federated project management, not

>   So, while making changes to OSGeo Live [1] 9.5 beta .. I will make "pull
> requests" from my own git instance, to the list. Just one problem..
> security.. I am still learning how to secure this new server setup..
> Temporarily, I have exchanged  SERVER:PORT information privately with the
> build-master, Angelos. Now his git "knows" the address of my git.. Pull
> requests from me are assumed to be from current MASTER branch.. (oh, also I
> need to setup the https)
>   git pull http://SERVER:PORT/osgeolive_athens  BRANCH
>   today, the branch was    rasdaman_log_quiet     ## a patch to get the
> configure/make/make install output out of our master build logs..
> I am sure people will continue to use Github.com to make pull requests,
> but with some setup, you too can use a distributed, federated model of Open
> Source Software Development, and I encourage you to think through the
> benefits and decide for yourselves.
