So we won't use that Github stuff.  Which we won't anyway, because we
avoid Github in general.

How does this help us decide about general usability of this
technology?  It doesn't.

I suggest to leave the legal stuff to the legal experts.  We should
assess the data and provide them with facts, not make the decisions
for them.  Which means this discussion, and your suggestions that we
should already stay away of this technology, are premature at best, if
not in the wrong place at the wrong time.

So please don't discourage independent assessment of this technology
by posting half-baked "legal" opinions from people with questionable
motivation (present company excluded, of course) representing that
this technology is legally incompatible with Free Software.  IMO, we
don't yet know enough for any such definitive opinions and
