Hi Albert,

Looks interesting.

I am trying to test what you've described quickly, but I am hitting an
issue that would be resolved by you simply sharing an example URI based
on the pattern you describe via the statement  " Go to the address bar
of this page, and append /api/github_username/repository_name" .

In the world of Linked Data, we should only be a click away from
whatever we are trying to expose to others.

I await a functional sample URI based on your repo :)
