Default Uploading Prime95 to GitHub?

Just wondering, was uploading the Prime95 source code to GitHub (or any similar service) considered?
(I'm not talking about Prime95 mirrors which only get updated each release. Those already exist on GitHub.)

I know that the code is highly optimized and non-portable, and still I think that uploading it some some VCS platform will be advantageous.
For one, reviewing the changes between releases should be easy and insightful (and hopefully we'll get to see more granular changes).
Also, this move might improve Prime95's internal development process (which I must say I am not aware of, but unless it already involves some sort of VCS, then it definitely will be improved).
