If you let Github become a single point of failure, maybe you are using git wrong? It's named "Distributed version-control" for a reason. I can really recommend this talk by Linus Torvalds about how git is more of a way of working than a piece of software: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XpnKHJAok8

The git aspects of github are not the things people build SPOF on.

It’s the code review tooling, the artifact storage & the deployment pipelines.

A distributed version of those would be awesome...

I may use git wrong, but didn't use GitHub wrong. First, Github provides more functions than a git repo. Second, I haven't seen anyone or any company using Git in the way as Linus said in the video. I believe most companies are not either.
