A non-technical consideration: GitHub is being acquired by Microsoft, who count among their clients the US immigration agencies (ICE/CBP) which have lately been making headlines for separating families and caging+abusing children, above and beyond the ordinary cruelties of our immigration system. There's a petition circulating on GitHub with users pressuring MS to drop them. It's highly unlikely they'll unilaterally cancel the current contract, but I'm planning to move if they renew.
Damn I didn't know that
24 million users, and I would leave because of 1?
What if my job insists that this would be their tool for collaboration, I can't give them this as a valid point (Even though it's quite sad what's happening). They are just another Github user
