Sorry, but calling a decision sudden when it has been made public 2 years  
ago doesn't sound right. It wasn't my decision to move the public to git,  
now you are blaming that these services stopped running smoothly because  
they were still using public access to resources you decided to declare  
deprecated years ago.

While you like to blame SPOF, this is the prefect example when  
semi-distributed services go down as developers ignore decisions they have  
been part of.
