Yesterday GitHub had an outage and it also resulted in some failures in the build pipeline for this blog. That’s why I decided to host myself a second Gitea instance on a VPS just for this purpose, where I mirror all the dependencies that are needed for a successful build, host some private repos or backup mirrors.
Having two Gitea instances (one at home, one on the VPS - both are backuped daily) also enables me to not have to use Codeberg for not-open-source things. And if I have a sudden internet outage at home, I can still update my blog (the blog repo was hosted at home until today).
