At least anyone who:

- doesn't run proprietary JavaScript; or

- boycotts PRISM participants (e.g. Microsoft); or

- boycotts GitHub or Microsoft for other reasons; or

- accesses via Tor (IIRC - some time ago now).

Also, people in the following territories have limited or no GitHub

- Syria

- Crimea

- North Korea.

People in those territories potentially have far more need of
trustworthy routers, whose code is under their own control, than people
almost anywhere else in the world.

Developers there perhaps also need more than most to have chances to
improve their skills, so as to build/maintain local infrastructure or to
emigrate to an employer in a more hospitable country.

()  ASCII ribbon campaign. Please avoid HTML emails & proprietary
