    Or even if not purchased. They were a US company (I have walked past the GitHub HQ a number of times). It is probably true that their previous legal team did not have the depth of the entire Microsoft legal team (money does requiring hiring even more lawyers), but the underlying regulations and responsibility to comply are the same. The details are often under various restrictions, but both GitHub and Microsoft have provided what are called "transparency reports" that provide the quantity of the impacts.

        I think it will make sense for GCC to host their own servers for code due to privacy reasons that has always been important for gnu projects. Github offers nice tools and good infra but when you are using it you are always also giving some information about yourself that can be potentially useful also for example for the linkedin.
