This is already an issue as described in ASTERISK-27665 because many tools authenticate the given certificate. Since February, GitHub even requires TLS v1.2: <https://githubengineering.com/crypto-removal-notice/>.

Good question!  Is there any way to tell how many current-ish
linux/*nix distributions lack TLS 1.2 support and would be impacted by
github's change?  If it's a large enough number, I think there'd be
some interest in looking further at the problem.
