I already verified with Marco, and he got no verification, and I didn't 

Marco is looking for an option to enable these notifications. In case 
there's nothing I think we should open a ticket on github's github page

I shortly checked, the information would be present in the github API, 
but honestly, we got enough issues to solve in our software.
