random aside: it would be really nice if Zulip had at least on-hover previews of links. maybe I should try to find an extension that does this

specifically just GitHub would be enough. I don't recognize issues/PRs by number

or with a "permit-list" for which domains

oh hey https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/github-hovercard/ has a list of domains, I wonder if that's for enterprise GH or will actually allow me to do this

maybe just showing the title of the page you're linking to is a general solution and good enough for your use case

ugh no that's for enterprise github and the extension's design is really bad, it slows down Zulip enough for Firefox to show a warning banner (and it's unusable)

there may be relevant zulip bots too, although I'd prefer for it to avoid an intrusive bunch of information..
