(twitter link) #github, apparently, has a contract with #ICE. https://twitter.com/evan_greer/status/1181745056698572802
this looks like it might've predated the microsoft acquisition?
anyway i went on a little rant: https://twitter.com/zacanger/status/1181791908198150144
TLDR is github should drop this contract, and if they don't have a good solution within a week i'm moving myself and my side business off, and pushing $day_job to try gitlab self hosted.
Read that disclosed email. Microsoft and Github are good guys in this.
We disagree, but not disagreeably. I support your personal decision to discontinue use of github/Microsoft if they don't drop their contracts with ICE.
Your company can't use feelings and morals to justify their choice to shun github, but if enough people threaten to quit because of it, it becomes a defensible business decision.
For me, I'm sure someone else will be happy to take ICEs money with no offsetting donations. Harm is being reduced by Microsoft. It's a net good, for now.
