GitHub.com github was an OK site for years, but then Microsoft bought it and things went downhill fast. MS has since brought tons of anti-features and gets in the way of developers every step of the way. One such obnoxious MS practice is to get on everybody's nerves with passwords. What passwords any user chooses is none of MS'es business, yet they disallow access of the developers to their own work, until they jump through MSes password hoop. This is just one example of the hostile stance that MS is taking against developers.
