Assuming Copilot will continue to be trained, I wonder if people can upload deliberately garbage repos on GitHub. You know, take an existing code base (appropriately licensed, of course), run it through git-filter-repo reversing all the lines or other nonsense things. Just leave them out there.
(Of course, if enough people did this, I assume it wouldn't be long before this became against the TOS of GitHub or scabs started reporting repos. What a dumb present we've created.)
re: Copilot (again)
@cstanhope Wondering if they're using the stars s a filter, so if you have a repo with few stars then it probably will fly under their radar. They're likely looking for large codebases with multiple contributors, not small one-off projects.
(Speculation, of course)
