it's a timely idea! Ever since github split watch into watch & star I've
been all at sea ... most of my watches are actually "bookmarking" and now
github doesn't provide the necessary features to work effectively with
"starred" repos (I've spent most of my time submitting features requests)
I just gave gitstars a quick spin, but unfortunately it didn't do for me
what I expected. Attempting to search my starred repos for a partial patch
(e.g. pdf .. expecting pdf-reader etc to match) gave me no results. And in
some searches it seemed like you are looking at ruby toolbox for results.
But, if you get this right, it will be awesome. How do you want to take
feedback? Do you have uservoice or sim setup yet?

> In this early version, we are focused on helping you re-discover the
> repositories that you may have starred and lost track of.
> You can browse or search the repositories by the tags that were
> automatically generated.
> I would love to hear your thoughts on whether you find GitStars useful

> p/s: This is an early preview release, bug reports are most appreciated ;-)
