Considering the previous version of this topic isn’t able to be commented on already, and no progression has been shown in the meantime, I’d like to reboot this conversation here.
Being able to self-host codespaces was “a thing” in codespaces beta, and is still (I think) a very much wanted feature, as enterprises can link their own codespace clusters to their own SSOs, and obey local laws wrt secrecy, confidentiality, or simply security risks.
Other than that, “locking” such a feature to a proprietary cloud option, behind a payment, is not an option for me, I’d rather self-host it and pay the bills myself, and have complete control over the environment where I code in.
However, this option does not exist, neither officially by Microsoft/GitHub, nor through a third party, the previous topic has shown a lot of interest in this, yet Microsoft has met none of that. Can any GitHub codespaces developer comment on this? Can any plans to release an open-source version of codespaces (to self-deploy) be denied or confirmed? It’d be nice to know if Microsoft is still planning to do this, or if they are steadfast in their cloud offering, so at least we know what to wait for or what to spend energy on.
