Semi-protected edit request on 3 March 2016[edit]

It would be more clear for the second paragraph to start with "GitHub offers plans for both private repositories and free accounts" rather than "GitHub offers both plans for private repositories and free accounts". The current wording makes it sound like it's talking about two plans that private repos and free accounts can use, but I believe it's trying to make it clear that GitHub offers two main types of plans (private repos and free accounts). In reality, GitHub offers a number of plans (, but this sentence is a more general statement. Brianok (talk) 14:53, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

Edit to "Departure of Tom Preston-Werner" section[edit]

Hi - my name is Kate and I am on the Communications team at GitHub. I wanted to enlist your help in correcting a factual error on this page:

> GitHub cofounder Chris Wanstrath took over as CEO, making changes to the organization's culture.

Chris took over in January 2014 prior to Tom's departure, as evidenced by extensive media coverage:

Would it be possible to edit the "Departure of Tom Preston-Werner" section accordingly, by either clarifying that Chris was CEO prior to his departure or removing that line entirely as it is misleading?

Thanks! Kguarente (talk) 20:24, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Hello Kate. Note my changes. I think it describes this matter thoroughly. I don't think mentioning when the new CEO took over is necessary. Chisme (talk) 20:13, 13 March 2016 (UTC)

GitHub Pages[edit]

The scope section talks about both:

"Small websites can be hosted from public repositories on GitHub. The URL format is"


"GitHub Pages: They are designed to host your personal, organization, or project pages directly from a GitHub repository."

I presume there's no distinction, and these statements should be combined? Or am I mistaken? --David Edgar (talk) 16:42, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

As there was no response, I went ahead and merged the two items. --David Edgar (talk) 22:22, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
