Subject: Re: [Python-Dev] Microsoft to acquire GitHub for $7.5 billion
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 :-)
