That is not fair.

1) Github: Many people do not use github, especially for KDE purposes.
KDE has its own git infrastructure, eventually. At least it used to

2) As for gmail, many, including, but not limited to, KDE, people do
not use it. But that is not even the point that is being debated in
here! The point is having an alternative or several of them in this
special case as some people have already rightfully expressed that. It
is not like that you cannot choose in this case.

Also the same service works for Math, Python, Java which i use too.
This is very very big and great project.

I really do not get your point. We are talking about KDE and Stack
Exchange in here. KDE has its own identity. I bet it is much more
important for KDE contributors to have this identity for KDE

thought we would be discussing KDEi
