I think we shouldn't be speculating or making guesses. If people are concerned with how Microsoft will manage GitHub, please talk to Microsoft or GitHub representative, and not gossip in python-dev.
What would talking to a MS or GH representative achieve? Of course they won't tell you if their company intend to disturb the current service in a few years.
1) being mere employees they are forbidden to make such statements that could hurt the company's bottom line;
2) they probably don't know themselves, since representatives aren't the ones making decisions, and there's no reason they would be notified months or years in advance.
So, if you talk to a representative, you will obviously get some reassuring PR speak (which might be sincere btw).
All we are left with is to speculate on where the company's interests lie. It's not unknown for products or services to endure stark changes after their provider is being bought by another entity. Microsoft themselves did it (see Skype), and of course others did as well.
