(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.
reddit tech bros: "vote with your wallet, if you don't like some software just don't use it anymore"
me: "github works with ICE, i don't think i want to give them money"
reddit tech bros: "WAIT NO NOT LIKE THAT"
github's response was to take the email and just post it on their blog.
fwiw this is not an excuse to @ github employees. your average SWE or designer or whatever at GH didn't make this decision. workers are not the problem.
