In Project plans for a hosted Gitea online service there is a section titled More mature online services mean less opportunities to sell services.

The CEO of the company developing Penpot echoes this in the unboxing penpot video when answering the question: “Will penpot have proprietary features like taiga?” (worded differently but same difference).
