🥶 Is your code future-proof? GitHub is archiving all active public repos to store in the arctic for the next 1,000 years.

The deadline is 02/02/2020 and on that day, GitHub will be archiving all active public repos to store in their arctic vault for at least 1,000 years. I wonder if React will still be cool... (no pun intended 😆).

I hope the humans(?) of the year 3000 enjoy the old copy of my personal website.

The 02/02/2020 snapshot archived in the GitHub Arctic Code Vault will sweep up every active public GitHub repository, in addition to significant dormant repos as determined by stars, dependencies, and an advisory panel.
Doesn't sound like everything to me. 🤔

Every active public repo. They say 'active within recent months' but not 100% clear what this is. Downloaded? Committed? Owner logged in? 🤨
What public repositories are getting archived?
On February 2, 2020 at 2 pm PT, we will begin snapshotting all of GitHub’s public repositories that have been active within recent months. Additionally, a team of chosen experts and advisors will identify important inactive projects to be added to the archive. To ensure your repository is included, update your repository, clean up your README, and push a commit sometime before February 2.

Okay, so it's every active + the chosen ones. I've read that the active ones will get filtered.
