If you use git then use gitorious or repo.or.cz or anything that's not github. Reasons:
- github source code is not available. This makes me very uncomfortable. Who knows what might happen to the source code hosted there. I am not saying they will sneak in a backdoor but they could.
trying to protect concepts by the force of law always gets a huge frown from me.
GitHub, in its sole discretion, has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Service, or any other GitHub service, for any reason at any time. Such termination of the Service will result in the deactivation or deletion of your Account or your access to your Account, and the forfeiture and relinquishment of all Content in your Account.
That wipes out one of the great advantages of storing source code online: if the author gets fed up and retires to the Himalaya as a monk, we still can download and use and modify the code. With this clause, this reassurance is nil.
