Use Github as a document Collaboration site

If Marked could directly read and write md files on private organization repos, we could use Github as a document collaboration service for our company.

Would need to be able to:
* Authorize access using github api
* Select Repo
* browse repo
* Ideally you can read and write an individual file with the github repo. Otherwise you would have to manage a local copy of the repo
* Allow for basic version stuff like specifying the commit message, selecting branch ,etc

The idea is to allow not technical people to use github for document collaboration with out needing to learn the details of git

    I'm not saying it's not a cool idea, but it's an entirely other app than
    what Marked is intended for. Marked isn't (and will not be) and editor,
    so in addition to adding embedded git functionality, editing and writing
    files is out of the question.
