Include the project GitHub URL and the SHA of the top commit somewhere in the package description, so the package can be traced back if needed as I don't maintain a version in the binaries. Also, it's probably a good idea to include the project wiki pages into the package since there's no /? or --help option in the binaries and somehow those wiki pages are not really part of the project (you don't get them in the .zip file downloaded from gitHub or if you do "git pull" on the project).
