I am currently experimenting with whether a Scaleway Stardust instance will also suffice for me as a code server. Scaleway offers this at an incredibly low price and if you then also select that no IPv4 address should be used, then the instance costs less than 0,50 € per month.

One problem I’m noticing is that GitHub doesn’t support IPv6:

# host -t AAAA github.com
github.com has no AAAA record

I mean we are in the year 2021! IPv4 addresses are almost used up, Hetzner just raised prices due to the IPv4 shortage and GitHub still does not support IPv6?!?
