curious: why use own hosting rather than github?

The beauty of Git in general is that you always have a copy of the repo
locally (provided it’s up to date) so that even if the remote hosting 
site disappears you can start fresh easily.

So, I personally wouldn’t be too worried about Github disappearing. And
it does have the advantage of a huge existing community…
