As a separate possible line of expense, it might be a good idea to start subscribing to a proper backup service for CSL’s main repositories (“styles”, “locales”, “documentation”, etc.). GitHub endorses BackHub, which costs $144/year for the cheapest tier (10 repos). Or we could hack something cheaper together ourselves. Seems like a good thing to have in case an account gets hacked or we dramatically mess up a repo ourselves.
I’m particularly curious to hear from the large downstream projects (Zotero, Mendeley, etc.) whether they think this would be valuable to them.
(we separately might also want to use Zenodo to e.g. archive CSL schema releases for long-term archiving and getting citable DOIs; https://guides.github.com/activities/citable-code/)
