Oh, I'm not suggesting making an official Fedora repository and
encouraging use. But, *huge* amounts of the open source development
going on in the world is on Github. Pretty much all young developers
basically live there. I share your reservations, but at the same time,
I think the blank page looks bad and doesn't give us any opportunity to
bring in new people.

Oh, we definitely *do* have alternatives!
