Thanks github for donation to Ukraine army! This a big step to support Ukraine
But, please, close it also for developers. They may use it for commit of malware or as hosting for attacks.
For example, they use Google Maps to coordinate missiles on our houses. Google answers us (people) and deletes these tags from Maps.
Github can be the next service to use and me (and other developers) don’t want that such a cool service stand on the same side with terrorists.
My petition about close github for ru got 2500+ signs for the night, imagine what will be when people got up in their shelters and start sign:
I really believe that github understands the whole situation. Services bans russia and github can be the good example for other repositories to follow this example!
GitHub’s vision is to be the home for all developers, no matter where they reside. We take our obligations with respect to government mandates seriously, which includes complying with stringent new export controls aimed at severely restricting Russia’s access to technologies and other items needed to sustain its aggressive military capabilities.
We also take seriously our responsibility to examine government mandates thoroughly to be certain that users and customers are not impacted beyond the scope of the mandates. This includes protecting open collaboration and the free flow of information in our interconnected community to support communications, humanitarian work, and organizing for change. You can read more about our policies on GitHub Docs.
In accordance with our Community Forum Code of Conduct, we are closing this discussion.
