There are a couple reasons to use GitHub - none of them great.

When uDig was using gitorious that many visitors would follow GitHub
instructions and get confused. GitHub one market share by having better
docs, and now it is assumed.

When GeoServer was still on OSGeo SVN we maintained an official GitHub
mirror to collect contributions from developers. I got the impression that
they would only search GitHub for source code, and if we did not have a
presence people would fork off from developers personal repositories.

None of those factors apply for marketing material, except for perhaps the
pull request workflow (and many contributors having a GitHub presence

I have not been terribly impressed with GitHub culture with respect to
diversity, and would love to see increased competition in this area. They
at least provide a diversity report, but that is by no means impressive.
