GitHub forces Gitbucket to change their UI

We received a mail from GitHub a few weeks ago.

It was saying GitHub does not allow to clone GitHub user interface and copy their proprietary materials. It infringes their exclusive intellectual property rights and also causes confusion for GitHub users. They requested eliminating GitHub’s property materials and similarity from GitBucket.

At first, we have never copied any materials from GitHub so this is not problem. However we should remove similarity to GitHub. Therefore we proposed changing color scheme to show difference clearly as a quick way.

Fortunately, GitHub response was peaceful. They said that’s good as a first step. But similarity is not only color. It’s made by with icons, with fonts, with the layout, etc. We should remove these similarity.

As a result, we will release the next version 3.13 with changing Bootstrap theme to the Bootstrap default theme and simplifying some parts of UI. And continue to make difference with GitHub through future versions.

Anyway, we want to continue to use GitHub for our project because we love it. GitHub has been making revolution in the open-source world. Great thanks for them.
