This plugin is a library plugin used by other GitHub related plugins to share the same libraries. This plugin does not have any user visible feature by itself. There's no need to install this plugin manually, although you want to keep it up to date.
If you are developing a plugin that depends on github-api, it's is highly recommended that you depend on this as opposed to bundle the jar locally. Doing so (as opposed to depending on org.kohsuke:github-api as a jar), we can eliminate the classloader problems caused by having multiple copies of github-api loaded. Specifically, if plugin A and B both locally includes its own copy of the github-api.jar and another plugin C depends on A and B, it'll break.
The version number of this plugin tracks the version number of github-api.jar.
