While going through my GitHub profile I saw this today. A Highlights section has been appeared with a tag Arctic Code Vault Contributor.
What is Arctic Code Vault?
- Svalbard is an archipelago in the town of Longyearbyen near the Arctic circle.
- It contains a Seed Vault which contains seeds and have been stored there for saving the diversity of plant genes.
- So GitHub has set up a similar kind of vault for open-source projects and chose the projects/repository which have been public before 2nd February 2020.
- The open-source projects have been stored on silver halide films which is claimed to store it fore next 1000 years.
I glad to be a part of it!

Well Svalbard is not a town, it’s an archipelago. The seed vault is located near the „town“ Longyearbyen. I lived there for 5 years ;) and I’ve been inside the seed vault.
Also it’s far north of the Arctic Circle at 78 degrees north.
I making a lot of mistakes in this post xD
Sorry, but that’s a sensitive topic for me ;)
Thanks for the info,
I too got that, but can you please tell me the use of that ??
I don't find any use in future or now !
Please feel free to message me regarding this.
Thank you in advance !
To us? None, likely.
I think this is being intentionally preserved as an artifact of our time and culture as a practical example to future archaeology efforts.
It's like the Golden Record in Voyager
Thank you for correcting. Made the necessary changes.
