GitHub can't be trusted. Or, how suspending Russian accounts deleted project history and pull requests

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/coding

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Quick

    The Swift (and Objective-C) testing framework.

    Take this example mentioned in the blog post. It was merged into Quick:main from younata:fix_parallel_tests - until the PR was merged, the code resided in the user younata's profile. That's the point of PRs, right? It can't be merged into Quick unless it passes review and is merged. Therefore, when the (allegedly) Russian user's profile was removed it removed all of the commits on their profile - including anything un-merged. Anything already merged, and thus merged to the Quick project repository, has not been changed.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
