Who is "we"?  I for one am not going to agree to GitHub's quite invasive
usage conditions for their "free" offerings which include killing a
project for any reason they want to at any point of time, explicitly
citing bandwidth usage as one such reason.

You're right, for contributing a patch and/or commenting through github, it's "we" as in "those that are bold enough to sign up on github". "We" also happily send patches or comments on the mailing list as usual; "we" as in "those that are bold enough to post on public mailing lists". It's still an added value that a non-empty set of people are happy with.
Now the situation is in theory not all that different with Savannah.
Except that Savannah does not serve stockholders but its users and Free
Software.  When they find that there is a technical problem in
connection with serving a project, "pull the plug" will be way lower in
the list of remedies than with GitHub.

Fortunately with git repos even if the hosting goes, the project's source code is still in hand,
