Github has really jumped the shark, they won't even display a proper ssh git address anymore...

@requiem still there for me, are you sure you're still logged in? Definitely didn't show up when I was logged out but was the default option when looking at one of my own repos.

@mike @requiem I see the ssh option when signed in, not otherwise, as it has always been. Yesterday, or maybe the day before, I was unexpectedly signed out for some reason. Maybe the same happened to you.

@requiem Looks like it might be possible to write a filter for a .gitconf file that automatically converts it.

@drwho I wish fossil would gain some traktion. Each repo comes with a bug tracker, a wiki and a forum. All in one C binary and still less complex as git. The fossil binary can also do fastcgi to host repos.

The fossil website is just one such a repository. https://fossil-scm.org

(git import/export works flawless)

@sh @drwho Fossil promotes a cathedral-style development model rather than a decentralized one. Git + mailing list is a more elegant solution IMO; everyone can use their preferred mail client to handle discussion.

@sh So do I. I've used it for a lot of projects over the years and love having all the Github-like stuff in one utility, for everyone using it, and it's all kept in the repo.

@requiem Just one more reason to abandon ship.

I'm lazy here; I have been wanting to get away from GitHub for a while now, but I keep getting distracted.

@requiem i still see it. maybe they do indeed a/b tests to see if people care

so, contact support and complain

or just watch them take over open source...

this is probably the next step to claim that they invented git. "it's an outdated github client. use gh now"

@requiem If you log in they do. Think it's been that way for quite a while. What's new is the github-cli to lock you into using github and not a distributed version control system like git.

@requiem to someone who doesn't have an account a clone using ssh won't work (and the site doesn't "know" if one has SSH keys until they login). I do think they could still show it "disabled" to show the possibility exists.

@binyamin @requiem Yeah SSH still seems to be there on my end. Maybe it's a slow rollout or user testing?
