There are tons of people hosting Bison in Github. Nobody knows who is the real 
maintainer and which branch is the upstream master one. Last time, I spent 
hours to figure out the legitimate Flex source repo.

In addition, it is very difficult to verify the candy you handle out is legit 
without tampering. I’m not implying you did. But I just don’t trust anyone for 
security concern.

But if you are willing to maintain bison. It is a great thing that we start to 
move Bison to Github in the name of FSF. 

People comes and goes. Only FSF stays. :-)
