Clarifications added; some of the info has been removed.
This is the initial version that ParanoidPaul captured. It is not necessarily the first version of the document.

	GitHub account name squatting is prohibited. Inactive accounts may be renamed or removed by GitHub staff at their discretion. You can examine an account's public profile to see if there's recent activity and request that support release a name for you, but keep in mind that not all activity on GitHub is publicly visible. Staff will not remove or rename any active account. 

	GitHub account names are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, and are intended for immediate and active use. Account names may not be inactively held for future use. 

	Attempts to sell, buy, or solicit other forms of payment in exchange for account names are prohibited and may result in permanent account suspension.
