Yes, Github would be awesome. Is there an argument against moving to Github?

If you move to Github, you could host the project website on github too. We do that for <> — everything is hosted on Github, for free (even binaries). Only drawback: Github pages don't support https. Thus, if you want a secure download, you have to go to the Github website and download from there.
