GitHub recognizes the crucial importance of open source software and the work of millions of developers, around the globe, collaborating together. We at GitHub see it as part of our responsibility to protect OSS now and for decades to come. Inspired by the Software Heritage, an important steward of open source since its inception, and others, we have created the GitHub Archive Program. We are thrilled to be partnering with Software Heritage to preserve and protect OSS for the future.
