    nothing's gone. the git repository hosted by the 3rd party is gone. youtube-dl is still around, still downloadable from their website (which is, not fuckhub). who gives a crab what's on github. having a popular project removed from github is a loss for github, not youtube-dl or anyone else. there are a thousand other code management suites.

    Oh jeez, you're in every subtree of the comments repeating this drivel :(

    ytdl's home page offers two links: 1 - their full development tree, with source control metadata and everything (a link to their github project, now censored), and 2. a snapshot thereof, in the form of a "release tarball", directly from their site.

    If all you have is the snapshot, you're dead but just don't know it yet -- that snapshot will bitrot, and will be made useless by google screwing around with their site. Unless a reputable clone of their git repo will pop up somewhere soon, having their latest snapshot won't do anyone much good.
