GitHub Codespaces and Open Source

I just noticed that we already have a informal kind of announcement regarding pricing in GitHub Codespaces documentation.

My main worry is while I like working with it since my primary target is Open Source, the only downside is that it would be paid in the near future, however for some providers like Gitpod - they have a special plan for Open source developers and maintainers to allow them to use the platform exclusively for open source development.

I wonder what would GitHub’s approach would be if I as a user, would just like to use GitHub Codespaces for open source projects?
