Would anyone use a decentralized, anonymous VCS for small codebases? I've been thinking about this idea, of a VCS that allows a developer to publish code anonymously, allows users to clone repos anonymously, and prevents any snooper from discovering the locations of the users. It sounds good in theory but would anyone actually use such a system?

I heard about stylometry for source code. It works exaclty same as stylometry for text. It is hard to create code and stay anonymous. Search more about in defcon or ccc wideos.

what if you run the code through an obfuscator before publication?

Comparing stylometrically source code from Snowden / Wikileaks leaks with Github repos one can trace NSA operatives publishing on Github.
