@jwildeboer If you're using their "proprietary services", you're not using Free Software.
If they did this to their free-of-charge users, that would be a different issue.
@yojimbo AFAICS they’re doing it to all gitlab.com users. Only when you run your own instance without support you are exempted. Am I wrong?
@jwildeboer I think you're correct.
I see external third-party trackers in their public non-logged-in page right now, pointing to Marketo, Google Analytics, Cookiebot, Bizible as well as the 'normal' but still uncool swifttype, fontawesome, cloudflare.
Mind you, they could self-host all the endpoints, and no-one would be sure that's what they were doing. So doing it openly is at least a little less scummy.
