You can resurrect any deleted GitHub account name. And this is why we have trust issues

Design flaw?

Seems to me a better design would be to freeze an account rather than delete it, and archive its code assets so they can still be accessed via the old path but not updated or deleted. That buys time to create a new fork.

(armchair idea, I'm not a GitHub user myself).
