Thanks for the explanation you gave. But unfortunately, this is not a simple issue that could be solved by a change in our hosting solution.

GitHub is a large part of the open-source community. Consider you are part of an international open-source project and you lost access to their repository.

This is what that happened to one of my fellow who works in the nuxt.js project.

How would changing your hosting not solve it? If the project is hosted on something that's not GitHub and outside US sanctions then all your contributors can access it just fine.

I'm not saying that moving the project is trivial, but it would solve the problems...
