"Perl 5 development has moved to Github"

Alternative title: "Microsoft expands its hold over Free Software"

But that apparently wasn't a discussion point.

@ayo microsoft would've expanded its hold if it was something like subversion. With git the hosting isn't really important.

@newt GitHub isn't a Git hosting site, though. It's a project management tool, issue tracker, social network and platform-that-every-shitty-tool-is-completely-and-bindly-dependent-on.

@ayo they aren't so much dependent on it, as migration is quite easy. Though I agree that the lack of viable alternatives could be an issue. There is Gitlab, but their pricing policy is just insane.
