"It's common for developers inadvertently to include secrets such as API keys and login credentials, unencrypted, in code posted to public repositories. But this isn't quite the same thing." This sounds like it's admitted that screw ups who are "inadvertently" screwing up on a regular basis, is common. Shouldn't be that way. How can someone just inadvertently screw up? No skills? THAT is far more common than people think... As far as this Cloud thing? This is just more evidence that it is not the be all/end all, or best solution.
