SourceHut is one of the good places, a beacon of resistance against big tech, please consider using it for your proyects and support the hackers that use it.

@rek2 I wonder if this is a fair assessment. The GOPROXY acts as a proxy server. There is a significant chance that for the largest part what would change is that he would get same requests from different clients. So, unless this proxy is "intelligent" to the extent that it does all kinds of "smart" things by itself, I wonder if there would be a big difference.

@rek2 OTOH if it really does (many) things not by user request, I would be curious to know, and probably also others.

@cobratbq @rek2 There's some more information about how it works on the issue tracker, see e.g. github.com/golang/go/issues/44 There's definitely a lot of room for improvement, and even the dev team has acknowledged that there is, but «reading robots.txt is extra work so we won't do it». Very poor netiquette.
