The youtube-dl team backed down, they removed functionality necessary for it to access some videos.
I'm not faulting them, maybe they live in a repressive country where their lives are under threat, they don't owe it to us.
But yesterday youtube-dl was accessible everywhere BUT Github, today partial-youtube-dl is accessible on Github, and from now on the main developed branch will be partial-youtube-dl. That's it, the boogiemen won.



@cjd What exactly did they remove?
