Major Attacks to Computer Freedom

Attackers were able to place malicious code in the PHP central code repository by impersonating key developers
I usually use PHP for web programming, but on this Blogger service Python is being used. Python is more popular than ever, it can easily be empowered with AI software, it is unclear whether Python guys are making the attacks, trying to prove their superiority. I will remain faithful to PHP for now, but my gut feeling is telling me I should lookout.
There are also political problems. It's not nice to see open source community eating itself from the inside. I hope that the time of crisis in the Free Software Foundation will end soon. LibrePlanet and other complementary projects should continue.
