Re: Git servers don't support 2FA on updates from Git clients

this is potentially where things get screwed up...

a) if I use github for my own stuff, I probably have 4 of 5 machines from which I do git push/pull

b) if i do this stuff for a client, who (let's say) has a PRIVATE REPO, I might be using MANY devices plus a workstation plus my home machine(s) to do development.

2FA is a PAIN IN THE ASS. I don't want it. Instead, I practice SAFE SURFING and use https and a complex password that I F-up typing a lot. And yeah, I have to type it in a LOT.

with the number of times I type in "git pull" or "git push" in a single day, they *BETTER* not make this MANDATORY, or they lose ME recommending their services *FOREVAR*

And I *NEVER* use the web interface except for really high level adminny things (where it's actually a bit easier, like create a new repo, or delete unwanted branches, or issues management)
