I see nothing *in* it related to SaaSS, so it must be as I initially
guessed out: it encourages the use of Github, which not only is
proprietary software, but above all is a SaaSS (btw SaaS is “Software as
a Service”, while SaaSS is, more explicitely “Service as a Software
Substitude” (the formulation is the other way around)).

So even worse than only being proprietary software (at least a
proprietary software could be reverse-engineered and patched, limited
and/or sandboxed, while github can’t, even if it were free-software! and
even if it were free-software and/or reverse-engineered, we couldn’t
change it to suit our freedoms, since it’s not our software on our
computers, but Microsoft’s software, on Microsoft’s computer (or whoever
own these computers, doesn’t change anything to the issue))!
