I just learned that Microsoft has taken over Skype.
Will this affect the availability of Skype in the Canonical Partner repository?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
According what I read, MS will still support Skype for non-Microsoft platforms. Skype not only runs on desktop OSes, but also on mobile OSes such as Android. So it would really be short-sighted of MS to stop supporting it on non-Microsoft platforms.
Depends how partner'ish will it be with Canonical. If it belongs to Microsoft, it doesn't necessarily mean that it will cancel its previous partnerships.
