These kind of posts seem popular these days.

My top six of features GitHub is missing:

  1. Searching for text in commit messages. Fixed 2017-01-04. About 2/3 of the repos I clone, I solely clone to run git log --grep.
  2. Searching in the wiki. Fixed 2016-08-08.
  3. Archive tarballs with submodule checkouts included; else submodule usage is totally pointless.
  4. Marking issues private to committers. Useful both for embargoed security issues and to keep out an angry mob.
  5. Being able to disable pull requests. For projects that use Github mainly as a mirror.
  6. IPv6 support. It’s 2016, damnit.

Sincerely,
chris2
