at least in the nightly it is still possible to add GitHub libraries

Will this change? Because when someone uses this feature, it only
references to the old legacy repositories, without a clue about that.

Maybe a good solution would be to set it to local files by default and remove the default value from the entry field. I don't think it would be wise to remove this feature all together as some users might use it for their personal libs. Some might even want to stay with the old libs.

A note about the fact that the official libs are no longer supplied via the github plugin might help as well. (There are a lot of tutorial out there that will suggest the use of the github plugin. This will not change just because v5 is released. So a hint in the GUI might at least help some to discover that this workflow is obsolete.
