Hi Karl,

Org-mode support in GitHub is provided by the package org-ruby[1][2].
Looking at the source code and test-cases here would give you a fair
idea of what is supported and what is not.  Also, the version of
org-ruby presently deployed on GitHub is a bit old, and the latest
release comes with quite a few fixes and new features.

One of us could probably write to GitHub, asking them to update the
package being deployed.  I tried contacting them on twitter a few
weeks back, but didn't work.
