As always, the question is the impact on our users. The traditional 
source of information for users is http://www.sugarlabs.org and 
http://www.laptop.org and, especially the wiki pages. The traditional 
source for activities is http://activities.sugarlabs.org (ASLO). So far 
the effect of gitHub has been to reduce the value of these two sources. 
In many cases the activities on ASLO have been superceded by ones on 
gitHub or other git repository but are not available to our users. The 
documentation of activities on ASLO has never been adequate but now no 
effort will be made to improve it. This continues the trend toward Sugar 
being a playground for the technical elite.
