OMG, am dying!!!
Someone used the bug GitHub refused to fix, that allows you to add a commit to a repo you don’t control... to upload YouTube-dl to the DMCA request repo on GitHub.
It's a cute trick, but this is not a " bug that GitHub refuses to fix" -- it's how git forks work fundamentally. The alternative is to either deep-copy each repo on fork, or to calculate reachability on each direct object request. Both options extremely expensive.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
