I am Using GitHub Under Protest

This project is currently hosted on my personal forge and mirrored on GitHub. This is not ideal; GitHub is a proprietary, trade-secret system that is not Free and Open Souce Software (FOSS). I am deeply concerned about using a proprietary system like GitHub. I urge you to read about the Give up GitHub campaign from the Software Freedom Conservancy to understand some of the reasons why GitHub is not a good place to host FOSS projects.

Any use of this project's code by GitHub Copilot, past or present, is done without our permission. We object to GitHub using the code from this project in Copilot. Given that this program is connected to ChatGPT, which utilizes GPT-3 from OpenAI like Copilot, you would consider this to be hypocritical. We do not have a choice, though; companies like Microsoft and OpenAI restricted their models with private barriers after training their models using open-source knowledge from humans. All people should have access to this technology, but until then we must adapt to and make use of these tools that offer those who utilize them an unfair advantage over those who don't.
