I am sorry, there is more to it, and I stand by my statement.
The day the repository went up (Thursday, December 31st 2015) a DMCA takedown notice was submitted to GitHub. That takedown notice was not processed until Monday, January 4th 2015, but not executed. The notice came back with a request to resubmit it.
This was frustrating, as you can imagine.
