Out of curiosity, did anyone else get several copies of the email announcing this over the course of a few days?

This is more exciting than this title suggests: this is a new repo for the site policies for GitHub.
From the email they sent out:
> We're updating our Terms of Service and Corporate Terms of Service. These revisions are the result of community feedback, along with clarifications and improvements to the readability of both documents. All changes are in separate pull requests in a new working repository, github/site-policy. Here, you can view, comment, and suggest additional updates—or fork a copy to adapt for your own site.
Please submit your comments by 5:00 pm PST on Friday, July 28. After that, we’ll take a week to go through your comments and make changes to improve the Terms. The new Terms will become effective on Monday, August 7.
Pull requests welcome
We welcome you to look over our changes and share your input using the new Site Policy repository. Please follow our Contributor Guidelines, and let us know if you see anything you think should be different—whether it’s a missed typo or a rule that might have implications we haven’t thought of.

https://github.com/github/site-policy/commit/04c8757f1fefd3e... this is fun - if you're a US government entity, you get much saner terms of service - they will not delete your data on a whim or without warning, only if you break their ToS and don't fix it when asked to. Would be nice if this applied to non-governments as well.
I'm also on mobile. It is clear that this is a diff for License, not term of service.
I'm on mobile. I think this is the diff?
Can anyone confirm?
