I totally agree and that was the reason I once injected there ocaml-markdown.

If I am allowed to say something on this topic: the rule of thumb
should be "put a repository here when you don't have strong ownership
and that you plan to maintain on the long term".

I was told that there maybe some problem with github billing. I am
still not sure to understand what kind of problem there should be with
creating "public" repository, since it seems unlimited (this is not
the case with with private repository).
