More likely just steal your best ideas

Oh bullshit anything would be better than the cockups that have been running it so far. Microsoft ported .Net to linux, wrote TypeScript and gave us Visual Studio Code.

roznak, you make good contributions usually, but I've got to call a spade a spade: this is nothing but blatant fear mongering. If Microsoft tried this the git commit history for any project would serve as the proof that Microsoft stole the code, because the patent would always come after the commit.

Only when you have enough money to fight a lawsuit.

I feel like the only scenario where it wouldn't be feasible to switch is in a corporate setting; but I think most developers could set up a local git repo with a backup on a separate hard drive with minimal effort.

And the amount of people in your community that needs to find the new location.

Would it not be appropriate to just leave a link in the old README on github?

Forgive me of my ignorance - what the fuck is github?

[–] roznak [S] 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

It is a source cloud code repository that was used for millions of Open Source projects. You could regard it as a central server where you share your work when you work on projects together.
