Not to mention the additional value of github pages, integrated issue
tracking (with, for example, the ability to close issues via commits),
as well as the integrated wiki. Those things are technically not
needed but are becoming increasingly important for developers in the
Callback community (and increasingly the open source community at
large) for whom those features are becoming indispensable.
