[Discussed] Github for Arch Packages

Hi

Looking at packages like: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/x86_64/linux/

I would like to know, ...  that: as some Open Source projects are moving away from the github, lately, after acquisition by Microsoft. Is there any plan of moving the  Arch Linux packages away from using the github.

Thankyou

Re: [Discussed] Github for Arch Packages

Arch Linux has no bias for or against Github. For some of our internal projects, we exclusively use our own servers and development occurs on mailing lists; for other projects, we mirror to github or even use Github as the primary development channel. It is *entirely* up to the individual developer's discretion.

Note that in the case of our linux sources, we also host it on https://git.archlinux.org/linux.git/ but use github purely as a CDN. The sources are securely verified using PGP signatures either way.

There's no valid reason to let a dislike of Microsoft stop you from using their company resources for free bandwidth. tongue
