I've completed every point-granting action I could find on the site and I'm at 4029. 2528 of that came from linking my Github profile.

I assume that component scales based on the usual GH vanity metrics. The person atop of the leaderboard (https://github.com/joho) has 700+ 'stars' between his 70+ GH repos.

I'd be interested in knowing what the github metric is calculated off as I was moderately surprised at getting 800ish for my mostly slim GH account.
