The potential good thing is if it makes people give up on GitHub and finally realize that centralization is a systemic risk.

People will never move a single finger against a "systemic risks". Only the leadearship cares of them.

Perhaps it's time to create an activitypub based git that could integrates with fediverse :o but as @milo said propietary AND centralized services are a two edged sword. Only federation and open standars are the vaccine against giant tech companies' control.
