Is the “service” they provide (and what it needs) allowed to change over time, so that the rights granted can expand? The definition of “service” in their document is—
1. The “Service” refers to the applications, software, products, and services provided by GitHub.

Something that may change is the way they treat Github accounts, after all, MS is very much a sales driven company.
But then there's always the possibility to move to Gitlab as alternative (hosted or run on PSF VMs), so I would worry too much.
Do note, however, that the value in Github is not so much with the products they have, but with the data. Their databases know more about IT developer than anyone else and given that Github is put under the AI umbrella in MS should tell us something :-)

That's true, but Microsoft has a lot of stakes in the ecosystem. For example, since it has its own CI service that it tries to promote (VSTS), is it in Microsoft's best interest to polish and improve integrations with other CI services?

At this point, I have no opinion about the event :-) I just guess that it should make GitHub more sustainable since Microsoft is a big company with money and interest in GitHub. I'm also confident that nothing will change soon. IMHO there is no need to worry about anything.
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
would make enough money to stay in business.
