If your AI processes AGPL licensed source code and thereby incorporates it, is your AI code required to be released to the public? Roll 3d6 and hire that many lawyers.

In case it's not clear what's happening here: @github's Copilot "autocompletes" the fast inverse square root implementation from Quake III — which is GPL2+ code. It then autocompletes a BSD2 license comment (with the wrong copyright holder). This is fine.
I don't want to say anything but that's not the right license Mr Copilot.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Copilot, is in fact, GNU/Copilot, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU code trained Copilot. Copilot is not an AI system unto itself, but rather a proprietary component that launders GNU code

Last Copilot hot take. MS/Github have used their dominant market position as the largest source of public code in the world to build a closed proprietary service, without the explicit consent of their customers.

If Microsoft loves open source, then just make Copilot open source. It would be the bare minimum fair thing to do since without all that open source training data set, they would not be able to build it. But no, they want to monetize it.

github copilot has, by their own admission, been trained on mountains of gpl code, so i'm unclear on how it's not a form of laundering open source code into commercial works. the handwave of "it usually doesn't reproduce exact chunks" is not very satisfying

throwback to that time a Google recruiter reached out to me after seeing my GitHub profile this was several months ago, but it’s only just dawned on me that they must’ve seen my profile full of abandoned projects and thought “yep, that’s Google material right there” 😂

As it doesn't retain the history from the template, it may not be possible to update them easily?
We've found it to work quite well on my team, as it allows folks to see things they're not necessarily involved in, and actively seeks out their thoughts, as well as not leaving it up to the PR raiser to decide who
(Although we're currently using the "round Robin" approach)
It also doesn't mean others can't review
Hmm I'll have to try it but I thought rebase-merge was the same as a
You can also do this with a "rebase merge" on GitHub, and yep would recommend it if you don't want merge commits. I'd generally say keep them, but amend the titles to be ie PR title

GitHub now automatically creates a table of contents for your README.md files from your headers. 📖 After much consideration, we made this a feature of the viewer, not a concern of the editor: no special markdown to insert. 💡 Let us know what you think!

We only have this set up in a few places as it's not possible to do it org-level as you say, or configure it via the API https://github.community/t/support-autolink-reference-configuration-in-the-api/14614/
I wonder what turn around? Selling to Microsoft? I hear that GitHub still has a pretty toxic culture. I know nothing about Jason but it’s serious red flag of other pathologies to see a exec out on Twitter thirsting for more credit and recognition.
Post detailsI hope one day we can tell the GitHub turnaround story. Many great people should be known & stories/lessons told For this tweet, simply this: Betting on myself 19 friends said I shouldn't do it: couldn't be done 1 said I *absolutely* had to: bet on yourselftwitter.com/jmj/status/136…

Congrats on moving! I'd also be interested what triggered the move 🙃

It’s fascinating to me how the CEOs of Shopify and GitHub continue to tweet ridiculously bad takes into the timeline while they platform and support white supremacy on their platforms. If there is proof that some people can’t be cancelled, it’s those two.

I'm sure I've seen this when you look at the merge commit, or commits on the main branch, if the repo uses tagging - it shows all tags applicable, so you have to do some thinking to find the first
