GitHub has indemnity language that is incompatible (in my opinion, and
perhaps to a slightly lesser extent, others') with a large open source

I don't know of any reason we'd ever not just host the git repositories
ourselves, we have too many other things we have to run that are much more
work already. Moving to git will probably happen sometime late this year
or early next.

We (uchicago IAM team) used to host our git repos locally & recently moved to BitBucket.  The primary reason for moving away from local hosting was pretty much why folks are moving away from on-prem email to various cloud solutions.  The providers have solved the problem, solved it better than what we were doing, and not hosting it ourselves meant one less service / servers / OS / app stack to maintain thus freeing us up to do productive development rather than maintenance.
