It's not been a problem so far. This is why reusing the current text is
a good idea.

In the past, having a documented norm has meant that when it doesn't
happen, someone just asks for it to be changed, and it is.

Github does not require a username and password to view projects, AFAIK.
If some mechanism required a username and password to view the archives
but anyone could get one using a throwaway email address, that would
probably be transparent enough. However, I don't know of any such mechanism.

Transparency != participation; there are different rules for participation.
