That's a great idea!

The github url can be derived by checking the homepage url and the
source repository location for the right pattern. (At least one of these
should point to github.)

Then we just need to send a GET request at


and parse the JSON response.

To avoid the delay while loading the page, I guess it's better to do
this asynchronously on the client side.

Anyone cares to write this piece of javascript?
