I wonder what this means for future monetization of GitHub. I am happy to pay $7/mo for private repos, and kind of liked that public source code was the default (i.e. for free). But now I don't really see the need to pay for GitHub for my usage. blog.github.com/2019-01-07-new


Some screenshots from the GitHub UI showing the new copy ("Pro") and the downgrade. Apparently free accounts get unlimited private repos w/3 collaborators but no “advanced code review tools.” Does anyone know what that means?

So GitHub Free users get unlimited private repos now, but they lack protected branches, code owners, GitHub Pages (!), and wikis. So, no spinning up a GitHub Pages site with a private repo on the free plan. So I'll keep paying that $7/mo. :)

@cassidyjames I don’t read it that way. If you scroll down far enough on github.com/pricing - under collaboration, I see Pages & Wikis - Public Repository. Is that not the same?
