It does spell uncertainty on the long term.  While there is no need to
worry for now, I think it gives a different colour to the debate about
moving issues to Github.

I don't see how this *increases* the uncertainty. Surely if GitHub had remained independent there would have been be similar concerns about how it would make enough money to stay in business.
