I think this could be HUGE for Github as they position themselves as the one stop shop for developers.
I can see six months down the line that every major conference is posting their collection of slide decks on Github. I can see tight integration with your repos and analytics ("See how this commit affects your conversion rate") and maybe even a "Start A/B test between these two branches" button.
All Ordered List products are now GitHub products.
I get warm and fuzzy seeing bootstrapped businesses grow.
What Happens to Your Products?
GitHub cares about their customers, and they care about ours as well.
For the short term, it means that not much will change at all. In fact,
it means better, more frequent updates and feature additions, more stability,
and even better support.
For the long term, just as before, we will continue to evolve our products
to best meet the needs of the market and our business.
Looking forward to seeing these products improve (they are fantastic already!)
