GitHub launched its own package registry 😱  ↦

ICYMI — late Friday afterrnoon GitHub held a live event to announce the beta launch of GitHub Package Registry.

GitHub Package Registry is fully integrated with GitHub, so you can use the same search, browsing, and management tools to find and publish packages as you do for your repositories. You can also use the same user and team permissions to manage code and packages together. GitHub Package Registry provides fast, reliable downloads backed by GitHub’s global CDN. And it supports familiar package management tools: JavaScript (npm), Java (Maven), Ruby (RubyGems), .NET (NuGet), and Docker images, with more to come.

You can sign up for the beta here.

Are they burying the lede on this? It seems to me that Github are really well positioned to solve the security hole posed by differences between tagged source code and packages. This + Github Actions = trusted, deterministic packages?
