So why did @github send me this T-shirt? Here's the story and why they've been awesome.

A while ago I created a Chrome extension that improves GitHub. They've seen it and also noticed I've used their logo as the extension's logo.

This is not allowed and they've reached out and asked that I'll change the logo. I promptly did and they've thanked me and sent me a gift of my choice from their store.

Other companies would have sent a cease and desist letter, but GitHub knew how to turn a bad situation into a winning situation 👏

BTW. Here's the repo https://github.com/berzniz/github_pr_tree

Awesome PR on their part. I always hear stories like this where the company threatens legal action.
