Not sure that this is a statement you want to advertise, since it
implies that the development happens behind the closed doors. (yes, we
all do that sometimes, but is should not be a part of our workflow,
and not something we should be proud of)

Now, with GitHub, it would not be exactly 'development behind the
closed doors' but for a lot of us it would be basically the same. As
Martin mentioned, this would be hidden from his eyes since he has no
intention to follow development on GitHub.

If something happened to GH, all the discussions regarding patches
(that went through it) would be lost. So, it is not like Krita's
Windows binaries - if Windows went away, we would lose nothing.

Cheers,
Ivan

Cheerio,
Ivan
