Neither Google nor GitHub are free or open.  Bitbucket and Facebook aren't
either.  I'm not saying they're bad services because of that of course, but I
don't want to have to rely on any of them to access python.org resources, and
I don't want my choice to be log into Facebook or manage a slew of passwords.

But I'm not volunteering to do the work, so I don't get to decide.  I'm just
stating that I think our principle should be that you *can* (not *must*) use
free and open services to access our resources.
