Thanks, yes, that's the gist of it.

I appreciate greatly that everyone here understands the value of open
source and avoiding lock-in and such. I'll often make a point about
such things just to "wave the flag" so to speak -- make a clear point
in the public record about our stance on freedom, etc. So if people
say, in this example, "Look, CentOS Project is embracing GitHub," we
have a discussion thread to point to.
