Yay, GitHub finally released traffic analytics: http://bit.ly/1gC9toI

Apparently, ga-beacon helped convince them that it's worth building:

Lesson learned: build more 1K star repos to get more features on GitHub! Also, for those wondering about "fate" of ga-beacon: you can use it alongside "native" GitHub analytics if you want real-time reports, and you can also use it outside of GitHub.. it's a generic beacon! Anywhere you can embed an image / pixel tag, you can gather real-time data and view it in GA.
