I think when you run gilab your own, you can run it on whatever server you
want in any country, and can allow access to whom ever you want
of course, for free hosting you need to follow the rules of the one who
does the hosting for you

so there are 2 aspects, the git software, which is git, usermanangment,
issue tracker, etc...,
github gitlab bitbucket gitteaGogs, .... the list is rather long

and the git software hosting, where some have the same name as their
produces, github gitlab bitbucket,
so there are companies that provide a hosting service and of you use their
services and you have to follow the rules of them


the problem is, if there is no financial baking, and you are depended on
free services , the non US options seem to be limited

I heard / read that kernel devs still use mail ...
