Not a license problem, but a tool that only works in concert with a 
non-free service arguably belongs in contrib, not main.

Even if acceptable in main, my point is that the Debian user experience 
would be improved by enhancing the tool to not rely on github service by 
default, only optionally.

I can understand how such independence from Github my very well not be 
an issue for (direct) Github users - but in that regard Debian users and 
Github users are not the same.
