Re: [GitLab] Gravatar vs libravatar

Forgot to mention: The obvious upside of Gravatar is that seems to be used by lot of people, and those are probably okay with using it. Having faces in GitLab is nice so people see something more than just nicknames, it feels more human and welcoming.

On the other hand, if changing to libravatar is well supported by us and we start using it it looks like an easy win-win for privacy-aware tools and people.

Hello all,

There is a request to replace Gravatar by libravatar on our GitLab instance. Both are supported in GitLab.

The reasoning to replace it is that Gravatar seems to have privacy issues. So I would like to know if we should replace it with libravatar or keep using Gravatar.

If you agree, please upvote on the issue, if not, downvote. Apologies for the poll, not sure a better way to do it for this since both options look quite balanced to me.

If you have any other comment, feel free to provide it here or in the issue.

Have a good day everyone!
