In the last couple of years, many free software projects moved away from 
Github to Gitlab, and then to Codeberg. Sourcehut remains a bit of a 
niche compared to the last two, but this upcoming move of Gitlab to 
remove dormant repositories could precipitate a new exodus, as people 
will look for solutions for long-term hosting of historical or stable code.

I know the Software Heritage project (Zack Cced) exists and will 
probably benefit in a way from this situation if it has the capacity to
