So, anyone here ?
Their github importer tool seems pretty cool but I haven't tried it yet: youtube.com/watch?v=VYOXuOg9tQ

@ricardo I think I'm holding off until I see some negative impacts. I'd like for tech ecosystems to exist outside of the big four, but I'm not certain that Microsoft is necessarily a bad actor. They seem to be the most active contributor to GitHub.

@Argus I was thinking the same, but their importing tool also brings over things like issues, milestones and pull requests, so it might be worth to do just to have a backup.

The tool is heavily dependent on GitHub's API, so it's better to do it sooner, I think. If they close it, I might find out too late.

@Blackknight I just copied them but I'm sure if I'll delete them from GitHub. I'll do it if Microsoft pulls some shady crap.
