If your software is OpenSource "who has access" is not really that
important unless groups of people are blocked from access. The
advantage of a cloud solution is that you get access to a large server
farm instead of using a single small computer.

I see three/four options how the whole "OMG Github Microsoft Issue"
can be resolved.

1.) we can take a few deep breaths, stay on Github and wait if
something happens that would affect the OLSR.org project. At the
moment I don't see any chance for Microsoft to fuck the project up
unless they completely stop free access to Github.

2.) we move a different Cloud platform... I would suggest Bitbucket if
this step is necessary unless someone knows a cloud platform at least
as good or better.

3.) we cry loud and think again about self hosting... which still
leaves the question about  "what software".

3a) we find a "good enough" and useful open source solution

3b) we buy a "wiki/bugtracker/git" solution... the stuff from
Atlassian (Confluence/Jira/Stash) would cost (one time) 30 Dollar...
40 Dollar if we want to include "bamboo" as an automated build server.

(I like the Atlassian stuff because I work with it daily)
