As noted in my comments to XSF mailing lists, I have concerns about whether the XSF should agree to the github terms of service and the broader implications of such agreement, to include the XSF taking on additional liabilities than it does with self hosting, the XSF needing to ensure it's affiliates (members, contributors, etc.) use github in a manner consistent with the github's terms of service (possibly requiring XSF to enter into formal agreements with contributors), and the impact on the effectiveness of our IPR policy.   While I have sent a note yesterday to Peter asking the board to review all of this (from a  business/policy perspective, not a technical perspective), Mike suggested I send this note as well.

Thanks, Kurt
