GitHub Copilot

Instead of trying to formulate my own opinion on GitHub Copilot, I’ll leave Drew DeVault’s blog post about it here, which is more detailed than I would have been: https://drewdevault.com/2022/06/23/Copilot-GPL-washing.html

With the launch of GitHub Copilot and the problems that it has, as outlined in the blog post, I decided to pull all my projects from my GitHub profile, leaving only forks and projects I’m a maintainer of behind. I will also remove the link to my GitHub profile from my website.
You can find all of my projects here: https://git.sr.ht/~witcher.

I’ll close this small post with an excerpt of Drew DeVault’s message to GitHub, found in his blog post:

You’ve invested in building a platform on top of which the open source revolution was built, and leveraging this platform for this move is a deep betrayal of the community’s trust.
