GitLab pulls U-turn on plan to crank up usage telemetry after both staff and customers cry foul

I am/was a self confessed Gitlab fan boy, I spent a week sniggering when Microsoft bought Github. But then Goldman Sachs invested in Gitlab and it became obvious which way this was going. I guess it's just what happens, you develop some great software, you attract the attention of the big money, get dazzled by the bright lights and gala luncheons and sell your soul to a corporate bank.... or Microsoft.... or Google...... or Amazon..... But I guess that then creates the space for the new upstarts to come up with a better idea.
