Well, I donât know. gmane doesnât seem like finishing any time 
soon, and I have my own https://gitlab.com/mcepl/pyg which works 
(more or less, still havenât finished parsing of Received: 
headers) just fine. Actually, I donât use regular Usenet almost 
at all, so I can go on with the current situation for a long 
long time.

Yes, unfortunately git covers only code. If you are on GitHub, 
all your issues and other true metadata are locked in completely 
proprietary system (albeit there is an API, so one can pull out 
data out of it, if necessary). Nice thing on Gitlab is that it 
being FLOSS, if worst comes to worst, we can install it 
somewhere else (e.g., my employerâs OpenShift) and restart
