Seeng reports of Microsoft acquiring Github and all I can think of is: 

all of your base belongs to us.

Re: [Chugalug] Github

Microsoft has been doing a lot of solid stuff with developers the past few years. MSSQL runs on Linux, .NET Core is properly cross-platform and fully open source…

 

I hope this is more of the same.

 

 

On the other end Github has had a long list of much needed functionality, they dragged their feet forever, and then ended up implementing *some of* it in an extremely sloppy way (by requiring me to basically commit Github configuration to my software repo), that is ridiculous for a company worth that much with effectively a single product.

 

 

I’m not worried because as an organization Github hasn’t really been high on that list of trustworthiness anyway for me.

If git weren't decentralized I would care more. It's pretty easy to mirror your repository, or move it away, or whatever. 
IMHO I think this is more of a move to acquire developer mindshare than anything.

Sadly, a good summary. But I know companies that pay for “private” for things that need to be better locked up.

I run a GitLab server, so I figure the Russians.. Well, anyway. Guess you gotta kinda trust something. I can’t sniff and decode all the packets. ;)

So semi-related: I would like to sing the praises of gitosis. It makes
setting up multi-contributor SSH easy.

Still requires an admin to put the .pub key files in the right place,
and control who has write rights, but if you've got mostly private or
small number of contributor repos, and are just using the Git (eg: not
the issue tracking or other stuff), it's nice and clean.

Thanks, I'll have to give it a look.  I have been using gitolite to
manage access/permissions, same deal, admin has to put the .pub key
files in the right places.
