    I absolutely love the new MDN where every article is just a file on Git. For example, the source for this article is here:

    You can find the link to the source of any article at the bottom of the page.

    Interesting. It has been removed from the doc yesterday, may be you are getting stale file from CDN. (I see up-to-date one.)

    > The web needs another platform for this, Mozilla can't be trusted.

    You don't have to trust Mozilla. All written MDN content is licensed as CC-BY-SA-2.5, and all code snippets are either CC0 or, for snippets over a decade old, MIT.

    And it's all in Git:

    So if the Web as a whole ever completely loses faith in Mozilla's ability to sustain the MDN platform, all of the content is licensed in such a way as to make it trivial to fork.

    There was even an attempt at spinning out the docs ~8 years ago (, which ultimately collapsed back into MDN.
