Re: [opensuse-project] Wanted: New hosting for opensuse-community.org
James Mason <JMason@xxxxxxxx> writes:

Why not statically host it through github or gitlab pages? It's free,
including TLS through lets-encrypt, and all you have to do to publish a
change is 'git push'.

That is probably not a good idea given what Martin wrote upthread:

For legal reasons it's better to have these things at arm's length
outside the official openSUSE infrastructure. However outside the
United States I'm pretty sure there should be no legal concerns about
hosting this content (note: IANAL).

And since both GitLab & Github have legal entities and their servers
partially in the US, anyone hosting the content via their account could
be subject to legal persecution (given how valuable github/gitlab
accounts have become, that is probably undesirable for many).


Cheers,

Dan
