As I've said before, neither Github nor our Forums are open source. The
registration for oSC will be done in Google this year - what's the problem?

When users don't control the program, the program controls the users. The developer controls the program, and through it controls the users. This nonfree or “proprietary” program is therefore an instrument of unjust power[1].

And because we value free software an open development process, openness
choice, standards, quality, transparency, our users and others and their work[2].

So, yes this does matter for our community and yes this is something to factor in (not lightly) for your decisions of which software you use for any purposes.

Please never forget, we are a free software project :-)
