GitHub just announced a competing product. Now what?

I built pydist.com because there was no good way to host private Python packages. Today GitHub announced a private package repository offering, and while the initial launch won't include Python, the CEO says it is coming soon.

What should I do? Continue business as usual, and let the market decide? Or is the bell tolling for me?

    There is still Bitbucket and Gitlab.

    If anything GitHub has put packaging on the top of peoples mind.

    Use that to try and get customers.
