While I personally hope those countries can access github freely,
it's not something Openwrt can resolve, maybe you can fork Openwrt
somewhere else and design a way for them to access? a project is not
United Nation counsel that _will_ solve world peace issues, it just

The reality is openwrt can barely make one release a year, whatever
infrastructure can help the project benefits us all. Others are free
to help those countries to access openwrt(which is why TOR exists, for
example), but let's not burden the core team with  political
responsibility, and let openwrt keep making the best OSS software
