#HotTake: I've noticed that #GitHub has gotten some pretty neat features since #Microsoft acquired it. Making Dependabot free and integrated with GitHub, deleting issues and the sponsor program. I'm sure there's many more features I'm forgetting/missing too. It seems as if new features are being rolled out way more quickly too now, given the bigger team size I suppose. Anyone else have any thoughts on this?
@Kevin citing techrights.org: Any project which takes Software Freedom seriously needs to avoid/reject GitHub and choose something else because GitHub is proprietary software, antithetical not just to FOSS but also to the decentralised nature of Git. It’s secret code and much worse things happen behind the scenes (including NSA surveillance; GitHub is in PRISM now).
@Kevin thank you for listing how Microshit increases the vendor-lock for MSgithub!
