Perhaps I am reading this thread wrong, but it seems that it would
alienate some people, yes.

I will not say that "me included" as I really do not have the rights
to claim so. I have not done much KDE contribution lately, but if I
were thinking of doing that again, this would be a negative point for
me. It would not be major, but still.

By the way, exceptions made for github might have more unforeseeable
consequences than you may now think. It can easily go beyond the scope
of github within the KDE infrastructure. What if people start asking
for exceptions in other areas, too, referring to the github
exceptions?
