I feel offended by the accusations.
I *do* care about open source.

Jeremy has already answered regarding GitLab and Launchpad.
Let's not forget GitHub actually *is* the largest, diverse open source
even though the service itself is not. It hurts me as well so please don't just
randomly attack people mentioning non-free software.
It can support open source software as well.

I did not propose that in any part. Launchpad is FLOSS and that is my proposal.
The general idea behind my mail was to emphasise that Storyboard has
great aspirations
and assumptions but is far from delivering its full potential so
should not be recommended without
giving background and other possible solutions.
