I have no github account.  I find github's terms of service unacceptable,
principally that the user is allegedly bound immediately (upon
continuing to use the service) by changes to the terms that are made
without notification.  See <>.
They've changed the language a bit since that analysis: it now says
they'll notify users of changes in advance, but with no specified notice
period, and one of the mechanisms they count as "notification" is a
statement on their website.  (The latter not in any specified form or
location, so not even possible to automate checking for it).  So still
rather too easy to become supposedly bound by terms that one hasn't read.

In any case, I don't want co-maint.  The XSification is a one-off.
