    @devTea Companies like to forget that someone can leak code in a number of different ways anyway

    Makes sense.. Somehow people manage to upload client/company project secrets to their personal public github repos. They alwsys claim it's an accident. I find it hard to believe

    I honestly have no idea how could I by mistake do that:

    - mkdir newdir
    - cd newdir
    - git init --bare
    - cd ~/projects/clients_project/secrets
    - cp id_rsa passwords ~/newdir/
    - cd -
    - git remote add origin http://github.com/its_an_accident/...
    - git add *
    - git commit -m 'whoops...'
    - git push

    They must think very badly of their engineers if they think blocking GitHub will stop data leaks.

    @bioDan @netikras Most likely the culprit is 'git add .' or 'git commit --all'.

    @netikras if people really wanna steal away stuff, they are gonna do that anyway. Blocking GitHub for that doesn't make sense.

    Just make a reverse proxy. I have a raspi just for reverse proxies and mirrors. It's 10 lines apache config and always proves useful.
