Are you using GitHub Package Registry? If so, what's it like? What does it do beyond what NPM does? Do they do any interesting integrations? I hope to be able to access it soon, but for now, they haven't let me in.

Update: They added me to the beta. I'll use this space to ask questions and share observations.

Hi Dave. I'm not a developer but follow a few. Andre Staltz https://twitter.com/andrestaltz tweeted a few things that were wary of the Github package registry. As follows:

Which package manager solution would be the BEST in the long run?

I mean, the very reason WHY we have a problem with npm is centralization.

For a long while npm itself was very friendly, we have absolutely no guarantees of friendliness with Microsoft in the future.

Wake up.

Getting tired of debating in my mentions about centralization.

Package managers is a great use case for decentralization, and so many things we depend on and appreciate are decentralized already: git itself, email, CPUs (wasn't always true, e.g. mainframes), GPUs, TCP/IP.

With this, when GitHub is down you wouldn't be able to neither git pull nor npm install anymore.
