At least as far as github.com is concerned, this is not quite true
anymore ;)

Github has grown to be a platform with many, MANY more features which go
way beyond a nice "web GUI wrapper around git". Just to mention a few
(over which I just "stumbled" recently myself):

* Web hosting of "project web pages" (which coincidentally are
managed/updated via a specific git branch containing all the HTML
respectively markdown files): https://pages.github.com/

* "Continuous Integration", with the possibility to define own "actions"
ranging from simple "code checking" to building executables / containers
/ whatnot:

* Per project Wikis, issue trackers, project pages, ...:

And probably way more.

And yes, git has become the de facto industry standard for source
repositories - so no point in complaining about it ;)

But this mandatory XKCD summarises it indeed perfectly:



Cheers, Oliver
