I want to know if it's still possible to support GitHub's commit via
different way, rather than do a `git clone`.

I find GitHub has RSS feed for the commit, the url is like
So uscan can parse that xml feed, and get the commit data, id, and
finally forms the download link like

Besides, the RSS feed url is not an API url, and will not have the API

That's simpler than doing `git clone` locally, though the shortage is
site specific.
BTW, gitlab also provides such feed, the url format is like
