I wrote my own quasi-forge a long time ago and it holds all of my stuff on a VPS I own. If my Gitlab account goes away, I'm not going to lose anything irreplaceable.
I only use the forges as a way to publish and to make it easy to contribute.
That being said, I was considering moving to Codeberg anyway so now I have impetus.
