My apologies, but I have no interest in using GitHub for a bunch of
reasons.  GitHub ToS require people to use their real names (which is
not a problem for me, but dangerous for some people) as well as “defend
GitHub against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought
against GitHub by a third party” [1].  I’m also concerned that more and
more people rely on a for-profit company, which may do whatever it
wishes in the future.  Last but not least, it’s powered by non-free
software [2].
