Stéphane Corlosquet has noticed that GitHub has added schema.org Actions using the JSON-LD syntax to the notification emails that GitHub users receive.

On Twitter, Corlosquet posted:

Tweet from @scolorquet: "Looks like @github just started to use http://schema.org  actions with JSON-LD in their notifications emails! "

He included this screen grab which shows a new layout for emails displaying “View Pull Request” and “View Issue” buttons in gmail:

Screen shot of evidence of schema.org Actions markup in GitHub notification emails.

…and a view of the underlying code shows a clear use of JSON-LD.

This addition was shortly confirmed by Ben Balter, Government Evangelist at GitHub, who pointed us to a blog post at GitHub announcing the news:
