A Silver Lining on this Open Source Cloud
While it saddens me to see great FOSS projects maligned and even targeted at all, there is a some positive spin to this.  As anyone who has worked on a mature FOSS project can attest to, good formal development processes can actually demonstrate their value in situations like this.  Being able to quickly identify change, roll it back and reissue releases that are clean is no small task.  As often as I hear complaints about the time it takes to implement and adhere to configuration management and release controls, I would simply point to incidents like this as a marker as to why we need them.

GitHub and dev security
After seemingly seeing a new GitHub-account breach in the headlines every few days, isn't it patently obvious that dev culture is antipathetic toward good baseline security? It seems like we in the community should be having a conversation about how to help make security training and security culture more pervasive and more friendly among the developer community.
