Government keen to launch domestic version of GitHub

20 Jan '20
The Russian Ministry of Economic Development is suggesting that a Russian iteration of Microsoft-owned GitHub be created in Russia to store open source codes, Kommersant reported. The project may cost in excess of $33m.

According to the authors of the idea, the move is necessary to insure against Russias possible cut-off from GitHub and global repositories alike in the current sanctions war.

The Ministry thinks most popular programs from international open sources can be copied into the new Russian repository.

A domestic version of GitHub is preliminarily slated for launch next year. By 2024, there may be five such repositories in Russia, according to plan.

GitHub is a global company that provides hosting for software development version control using Git.
