ARA is an "unofficial" OpenStack project that would be part of this
move and I would appreciate if ARA could remain on GitHub where the
Ansible community is.

"Free software needs free tools" [1] certainly ranks at the top of the
presentations I have attended and I have the utmost respect for the
four opens, the foundation's values and mission. Please do not
consider that I have sold my soul to proprietary software vendors.

A Fedora council blog post [2] has recently worded this better than I
probably could:
Ideally, we want everything to be on open source services (e.g. Taiga,
Pagure, or GitLab). But, as a pragmatic matter, we recognize that
GitHub has a huge network effect — there are millions of users and
developers there, and millions of open source and free software
projects hosted there, including software that’s fundamental to the
Fedora operating system.

Is there a way to make this work ?
