There are literally hundreds of FOSS projects on GitHUB and sourceforge is/was just as commercial.

hundreds of thousands*. Github is already a monopoly and will only get worse.

There are numerous libre git development hosting services out there, such as the new Sourcehut project, Gitlab CE (community edition), Gogs, GNU Savannah and Gitea (the last three lack features). As well as numerous public hosts that host instances of these: sr.ht, framagit.org, notabug.org, gitgud, ...
