Anyway youtune-dl it is still available for download from https://yt-dl.org/ which have been updated accordingly, only the git repository is not accessible at the moment, so much ado about nothing as could have said William S.
I do not said otherwise about the videos content.

BUT, it is legal to hack/abuse the Youtube server/system for downloading freely videos supposed to be streamed?

Please note that the downloading of videos is a payed service on Youtube - at least from what I known.

We Russians we already have two vaccines against COVID19 and all academics works 24/7 on the third.

Regarding myself, were I live there are more bears and reindeers than humans, then I am relatively safe...

Maybe move the thread to another section of the forums, then? I don't use Slackware, but I use youtube-dl, and this discussion is certainly of interest to me. If you don't like it for whatever reasons, you could always simply ignore the thread.

Inasmuch as git is a distributed version control system, the github block is close to the same as shouting to the tide to stop.

BUT, it is LinuxQuestions even the place to discuss about this youtube-dl problems?

How youtube-dl is a tool to hack and/or pirate the Youtube servers, I believe that is better if a moderator could say a more entitled opinion about discussing youtube-dl's legal issues and takedowns...

I for one do not care about it and I never used it. I just do not believe that's the place to discuss about it.

Me too...

So, about what you want us to discuss next, my friend?

About Plasma5 or about the better ways to customize rootkits and to deface servers, of course, absolutely only for "educational purposes" ?

Honestly, I believe we should talk about Plasma5. It is a fine desktop and this is the Slackware forum, after all...

Still present on Debian repositories. Just for curiosity I installed it on my Devuan install. Besides it is just python script. Anyone with enough skills in python can create something similar.

From youtube-dl.org:
Quote:
youtube-dl downloads
Latest (v2020.09.20) downloads:
youtube-dl youtube-dl.exe youtube-dl-2020.09.20.tar.gz
See the right for more resources.
Currently our dev repository is taken down due to DMCA takedown notice by RIAA.
Downloads still work as usual.
I won't even try to understand US patent and copyright legislation. But I do know that here in Sweden it's perfectly legal to make copies of copyrighted material for personal use, e.g. to make audio/video recordings of radio/TV programs and streamed music and film, as well as making copies of copyrighted CDs, DVDs, ebooks and so on, as long as I don't share this material with others or (of course) make it publicly available by uploading to some website. So for me, banning youtube-dl makes no sense at all.

What I find intersting is this: youtube-dl's source code is under the GPL. Thus shutting it down is (a) nonsensical and (b) illegal.

Right: will the Free Software Foundation stop debating on what free is, what beer is and whether Linux is an Operating System or not long enough to actually do something real? Will they sue the Recording Industry Association of America for illegal suppression of GPL2 source code? This could be the shining moment for the FSF. This could make them or break them. Will they step up? Or will they wuss out and reveal themselves as self-absorbed ineffectual posers?

The world watches.

Not only in Sweden. The "fair use" provision is part of traditional copyright law everywhere. Basically it allows individuals to make single copies for private study but not to distribute copyright material.

Maybe youtube-dl is hosting in the wrong place? There's plenty of spots the US isn't listened to (e.g. Russia).
