github is more common, I guess, but it also has the big disadvantage that
you might suffer a bad vendor lock-in experience here one day. gitlab is
(mostly) free software instead, and there are also other public instances
beside nowadays (e.g., so I'd
rather prefer gitlab if we ever migrate somewhere else. But I think at
least on, new account owners have to provide a credit card number
nowadays to be able to use the CI (to proof that they are a real person and
not an automatically created crypto coin miner account). 

Anyway, certainly still has the way cooler domain name :-)
(and other cool features like mailing lists).

Migrating a git repository from one server to another is not a big deal,
it's decentralized anyway. It's even way less pain than migrating a CVS or
SVN repository.
