Which is, again, a false dichotomy. Github is a remote repo. In git you always also have your own local repo, and things like 'git am' and 'git send-email' (and 'git rebase --interactive', and 'git bisect', and any other non-trivial use of git) are operations that you would always want to be performing locally before pushing it out to a remote repository.

That there's no interface to perform these things on Github doesn't mean that Github is trying to engage in vendor lock-in, it's just a reflection of the reality of the fact that you should be doing that stuff to your local private repo, with your local client.
