are surging everywhere right now.

of [youtube-dl](,
GH's [Copilot](, I don't think GH

GitLab ( instance) is not a good choice either because
they block TOR users:
$ torsocks --isolate git clone
Cloning into 'flake8'...
fatal: unable to access '': The requested URL returned error: 403
Moreover, they have the
[annoying captcha and the anti DDOS things that never work](
which prevented me from logging in with some browsers so I removed my account there.

Anyway I will keep the account for now in case I have to contribute to some
project hosted on GH.
## Current hostings
For the moment my repositories are hosted here:
