We'd be happy to have more people use it. There is also gitlab.debian.net alias for this instance, though it will need a local account to work. There is a feature request for supporting multiple domains https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/19449 >> Using github as well is up to you.

The entire idea of that instance is to make a 100% Free Software public git hosting service available to the Free Software community. Yes, it is running gitlab debian package backported for jessie (https://people.debian.org/~praveen/gitlab). All code is in debian main. We'll switch to stretch once its released so it will be a fully official package (though I plan to provide updates via stretch-backports, which is still official debian).
