I am not sure what that means.  Could you state in different words
what job that "intermediary" would do?

In fact, the Taler developers are hoping that banks will play two
roles: issuing Taler tokens to spend, and redeeming those that people
receive as payment.

                                                           This would again

I don't know whether that is possible -- I suggest you talk with the Taler
developers about it.

See https://www.gnu.org/software/repo-criteria-evaluation.html for what's
wrong with Github.  Some actions, such as creating an account, appear
to require running nonfree JS code.
