My question was not "How do you use this" but rather
the more basic question: "What job does it do?"
However, you've given me the answer:
it permits setting up a web site and editing it with git.

That, in principle, is fine.  The moral issues result from
the specifics.

One issue is about nonfree software.  Can a user running IceCat, with
LibreJS enabled, use all aspects of the resulting web site?

Would you like to try that and see?

Last we checked, github.com did NOT entirely function without nonfree
Javascript code, so we urge people to avoid GitHub entirely.
For that reason, it is undesirable for GNU code to be stored
in GitHub.
