$7.5B in stock.  While I am not particularly happy that our issue/review
migration plans got us stranded on SourceForge, it looks like we at
least dodged a potentially larger bullet.

Terms and Conditions for free project hosting already included the
caveat that projects may be cancelled at any time for any reason.  For
strategic projects like, say, Samba, ReactOS, Wine, LibreOffice and a
few others that may in some respect be considered a thorn in Microsoft's
side, this makes a platform choice of GitHub a quite less appealing
option than it had been before.
