My earlier comment is getting picked up more serious then expected (did
no one notices the emoticon?)

Anyway, I replied earlier to Sara off list:

 "I like to have less external dependencies as possible (for several
  kind of reasons: collateral damage risks, entity termination, ...).

  But I did agree that less maintenance overhead is a strong argument
  for using github (but personally I would still prefer gitlab)."

(You might find them no good arguments. I do)

Nevertheless, we decided to use github instead of gitlab, rough
consensus style, weighing the arguments. Perhaps it is worth mentioning
those arguments that make us come to that decision.

Best regards,

Think Patrik and Jakob brought up the argument that other companies uses GitHub private repositories to store sensitive code and as such relies on GitHub to keep it secure. Also with an own instance there is more administration with users if they are to upload pull requests. We get a lot better system for the community with GitHub and at a lot less work for us.
