Are you in the GitHub Arctic Code Vault?

Looks like GitHub is pushing out new contributor badges.

It looks like this.

I think this selection was taken in February 2020, but they might archive more repos later, who knows?

They might do it again later. This program already began its journey to arctic with over 21TB of repository data.

Ha ha, thank you so much, Annie, for your comment about my post and image! I knew I'd made a boo-boo so I quickly deleted and tried again - and finally got it right! Looks like my old version still appeared a few places, but hopefully, that'll peter out soon. But thanks for speaking up!!

I never applied for the program, wasnt even aware of it, but still i received the message :"You contributed code to the 2020 GitHub Archive Program and now have a badge for it. Thank you for being part of the program!" I find this very suspicious. I really hated it when Microsoft acquired GitHub. I wish GitHub remained fully independent; now with these data hungry companies that want to track spy and know everything what can we expect. Microsoft bought GitHub that bought in turn NPM, I really dont feel at ease with all that.

They gave the badge to everyone who contributed to any open source project, even if it's your own repos. But in the badge they only mention the top 3 starred repos you contributed to, so eh, it's nice to have I guess.

Btw, does anyone know if there's a way to see the full list of projects that have been included? As a contributor to several open-source projects, I'd like to see the full list instead of a generic "and more".

Very cool that they're looking to preserve all this code for the next 1000 years (at least!). If anyone wants to read about it: archiveprogram.github.com/

"GitHub Inc. said today it has delivered a copy of all of the open-source software code stored on its website to a data repository at the Arctic World Archive, which is a very long-term archival facility buried 250 meters deep in the permafrost of an Arctic mountain."
"(...), it will store its code in an archive called the GitHub Arctic Code Vault, which it says has been built to last for a thousand years."
