A show hn should be a 'show hn' not a github repository with code and some comments.

Hi, just wanted to point out that I came across many Show HN posts which simply point to the tool's GitHub repo.

Having read the Show HN "guidelines" at https://news.ycombinator.com/showhn.html, I don't see anything wrong with posting a link to the tool's GH repo. There is a (yes, very simple) README which contains everything a user needs to try the tool out and provide constructive feedback.
