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. https://blog.github.com/2019-01-07-new-year-new-github/
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?
