(it is one of my longer term goals to integrate the comments into the generated sites, for a coherent style.)
I just saw the Haxe docs uses utterance for comments. That's awesome.. I saw when they added comments to the docs but I didn't know it's done via Github.. great!

If you have any questions or ideas just shoot!
For those who might be wondering, using OP's GitHub repo as example, the first post in the issue thread gets converted to a blog post.
That's pretty cool! Though, it will be tough to pry myself away from my blogging flow that uses Org mode as content source and uses all of the Org+Emacs functionality :)
I just wondered if the linked feature would be useful for orgmode users or if it isn't really relevant. Maybe it would help someone else to use Glyph in a similar manner.
Because.. uploading a Markdown file to a Github issue is one thing, but then what about refactoring, occasional post edits, etc.? Probably keep on overwriting the same Github issue with updated Markdown files?
You don't have to reply to these questions here.. just some thought if you do invest time in implementing this feature request.
The only "benefit" I can still see then is the great commenting system that is attached to each issue.
I added some more features to glyph over the last two weeks however I had not put any more thought into this feature so far. It is really low priority for me right now and I guess it's not THAT useful so that's ok :)
Thanks for your input however. It is always very welcome.
"Glyph removes all of those drawbacks for you."
In contrast Glyph offers you all the custom theming you want (I think) :)
You can check it out.. I think it's partly what you described.
I vaguely remember that Github Pages agreement mentioned not doing something like this, I might be wrong though and be thinking of something else.
