Ah, I see ;-)

That would be a reasonable guess, but actually I don't think it's
particularly true because GitLab actually has much wider scope than
GitHub.  IIUC GitHub relies heavily on third party integrations for a
lot of the stuff which GitLab is either bundling in CE or EE.

Yeah, I suspect a lot of the recent migrations have been just to
demonstrate a point about how people view Microsoft, rather than
driven from any genuine practical concerns.  If they cared that much
about using libre SaaS they wouldn't have been using GitHub in the
first place ...
