GitHub acquires npm

It was suggested that Microsoft/GitHub should have bought npm back in the day, instead of launching their own registry. Today is the day they’ve actually done it:

For the millions of developers who use the public npm registry every day, npm will always be available and always be free. Looking further ahead, we’ll integrate GitHub and npm to improve the security of the open source software supply chain, and enable you to trace a change from a GitHub pull request to the npm package version that fixed it.
