There are sometimes things in the software world world that I, being a developer, still fail to understand.
One minute later, and I mean it, just a minute after that event I received an alert from Google on my email:
Google’s apprehensions were wrong since the key was never secret anyway. It’s always been visible to anyone in the source code of the Map page, but that never drew the bot’s attention.
But it’s beyond my understanding how it managed to discover the fact a repository was switched from being private to public in a matter of seconds. Does GitHub notify Google of such events?
