Apparently there was something wrong with the clone urls which made it worth to add those icons to do heavy duty select-and-paste work for me.
It doesnt work.
That technology copies into the selection buffer. I need to mark ordinary text so i can paste it into an xterm. I use the traditional xorg xterm without silly menues. Middle button pastes from the X cut buffer.
It would work better if it just printed out the git repo address as plain text and added the href links after it. (Perhaps some margins around the text so that it is easier to aim.)
PS. Dont get me wrong github. I’m addicted to you. I should seriously look into paying even though you have such a good free plan.
