its a valid point - i believe there was an unwritten implication
in that quote though - it was implied that the those tasks could
not be accomplished on ones own computer

surely, some people do not have a reliable internet connection
- for those people, a freebie service may be the only option; but
self-hosting is possible, and hosting is affordable

i think that the "gist" of the SaaSS definition, is that it
covers any computing task, which could be done on one local
machine, or at least one controlled by the user

perhaps publishing is not a significant computation; but forges
do much more than publishing - they are complete applications -
they actually simulate several discrete applications (bug
tracking, code review, signature verification, forum, mailing
lists) - also live alerts / web-hooks / @mentions, third-party
API integrations, and other webby bells-and-whistles
