It may be that versioning tools and marketing initiatives exist in separate domains.

    Re MC2: IIRC, it also (like github) supports external files (e.g. jpegs), which seems an essential basic – missing – piece of functionality, even though these resources can be easily downloaded now that we have nice web clients.
