Actually this point is one where IMHO there is not a consensus about it. In my
opinion, we can very well migrate the master repository to github (or any
other git repo provider). I don't consider the risk of code corruption any
larger on a git repository other than one on gnucash.org, as git's checksum
prevents unnoticed code changes by design anyway. (That's different in SVN,
though, where the integrity of the server repository is much more vital than
I remember you have always voiced very clearly you prefer to host the master
repository on a server that's controlled by one of the gnucash team. But
actually I think differently about this point and would prefer to host the
master repository somewhere that requires the least effort for us. IMHO that
does not have to be a server under our control.
