> Does GitHub's policy allow hot linking?
I can't find anything in their policy stating that they don't. They explicitly say the feature is meant for hosting binary releases and they even provide a way to get the download count.
Btw, I mentioned this several times, it is also possible to host a website on GitHub. The main advantage is that our website's source would be a GitHub repository, which would make collaborating on it much easier. A blog-like static website generator called Jekyll is supported.
Apart from this, I don't really see a point in moving to tuxfamily. What does tuxfamily provide that SF does not? In what way is it worth the effort?
