I think very soon it's would become standard distribution system for many of different opensource apps. So the short answer is YES.

Just a thought but github does provide pages and cdn backing them. We could move e.g. our documentation as well as downloads there to save cost and increase download speed.

The GitHub TOS don't allow hosting large binaries in repositories (which one would have to do in order to use Pages). David
