Well, if it ain't been said yet, if you have open source code with a good 
license and watch your checksums and pull requests, you might be alright, for 
a while. But anything proprietary, you're a fool to stay, and possibly a fool 
for having put it there in the first place.

...but what bothers me is, where are we supposed to go now, and why so soon? 
Dice at Slashdot, along with SourceForge and Freshmeat. We know they trojanned 
many SF downloads, and totally killed off everyone's favorite repo (Freshmeat). 
Now we have to leave GitHub? I'm getting a little tired of having to move 
every time I turn around.
