I am no GitHub expert (am not even much of a user), and based on my (very limited) experience with it so far I agree with your criticism of it, but FWIW I recently found that "to get a link to a specific version" you simply need to press "y": https://help.github.com/articles/getting-permanent-links-to-files/ "When viewing a file on GitHub, you can press the "y" key to update the URL to a permalink to the exact version of the file you see." and I actually made use of this on a few occasions already. There are other keyboard shortcuts as well. As the page above says: "Tip: Press "?" on any page in GitHub to see all available keyboard shortcuts." Alexander
