Github came out years ago as a SJW run shithole.

This is why everyone's already jumping ship to gitlab, gitgud, or self-hosting.

Do they have the same relative functionality as GitHub?

Was looking at GitGud and

We don't care what you host via GitGud as long as the content is not illegal.

How is this such a hard concept to grasp for SJWs.

Same functionality, slightly different interface to it.
As for SJW's, because they're activists firsts, and coders second.
But don't blame the stormtroopers for what the Emperor is doing. Follow the money.

github is racist anyhow. They went on twitter and announced they don't want to interview white males.

Fuck the little soy-based bastards.

Let's ignore the one candidate base which is productive, and then sell to MS when our policies fail. It's easy to be diverse when you can sell out to an even bigger company

They bought Skype with the specific intent of opening it up to the NSA.

Never forget. The frist thing they did is route all calls though central servers instead of p2p.

But what about the phones? Both Android and iOS represented here.

FTFY: Lineage OS is Android with less malignant Google cancer.

Github is mostly about open source development collaboration and hosting. If you aren't hosting proprietary code in private repos what's the problem? Your code is already shared with the entire world, by design.

Your code is already shared with the entire world, by design.

To me, this is the issue. It's a perfect attack vector for backdoors if a bad actor controlled it.

Think about how many software packages are hosted by Github. Developers around the world use these libraries in their own other bits of software in websites and systems around the world. If the CIA gains the ability to target users and inject code they want into various repos, it would be hard to detect it and give them a way to spread their backdoors into tons of machines.

For instance, if they can identify that the developer at IP address XYZ is a person they want to spy on or has some connection to somebody they want to spy on, they can allow him to download a special version of a software library he uses and get it on his server and the CIA can give themselves a backdoor. Even comparing the repos hash to the files downloaded isn't necessarily foolproof if the CIA controls what hash they give you to check against in the first place. If the CIA controlled the system, they could do this on an individual level and it would be very hard to detect and the wider open source community wouldn't even be able to easily catch this.

Of course, this is just a guess: I have no proof that the CIA/NSA is planning this type of thing. It could just be Microsoft's attempt to buy goodwill among the developer community: which they depend on over the long-run. But given how shady the government has been with this type of stuff...who knows what their real goal is...

Ummm, then developers should keep an eye on pull requests and push code more often ;-)

Pushing code means you’lol get merge errors and duh! Looks you can find was secretively put there.

Oh right! It’s reallklllllllly hard to detect!

Git is a decentralized VCS. If you're relying on Github you're doing it wrong and deserve anything that happens as a result of that.

An astute developer, would probably pick this up fast, atleast I would hope so.

This is why you use Git's cryptographic signing facility.
