It's just a binding failure
September 1, 2015
A GitHub extension VS bug
caused some serious damage for some dude. It was very sad to see the actual cause of the bug
though. A frigging WPF checkbox binding failure case GitHub projects to always be created public.
It's funny because a lot of people who do XAML figured out that MVVM/binding is the wrong way to tackle UIs of a reasonable complexity but on the other hand it's still sad to see it fail so miserably.
