+1 I think that would be sufficient. My biggest fear is whether github¹s
business model is sustainable. But there are a lot of important projects
and big vendors putting code there so I think it¹s safe to assume that
github disappearing is a long shot and if so, our plans should revolve
around disaster recovery and not a constant mirror of the environments.

BTW, love to see this and thanks to the Board for kicking this off. I¹ve
been hesitant about the github culture and processes, I.e. Pull requests,
as I engage Andmore which is hosted there. But that¹s just me being stuck
in my ways and not wanting to deal with two systems at once. Once I get
over that, I¹ll be fine :).
