Please keep another alternative in mind: pay OSGeo system administrators.
Will burn some money, but won't burn out volunteers who have to keep
OSGeo's own infrastructure up and running.
Even if I understand that the cost for OSGeo sysadmins might be higher
than the cost for a GitHub account, I can also see that the money
spent on SAC might result in indirect benefit for free software tools
(I'm sure SAC people do file tickets for the tools they use) while
those spent on GitHub could only result in benefit for the proprietary
software used to run that service.
