GitHub provides a gists API which makes machine-readable info about the gist available via JSON, so even just an URL and tags would be enough and you could fetch the rest via API.

disheartening that we all use github instead of a FOSS version like
gitorious. If the linux kernel did the same (continued to use
proprietary package management) we wouldn't even have git. I wonder
what our choice to use github (along with what seems like a million
other developers) means for the prospects of a gist-like feature in
gitorious (which we could install on our own servers).
