As announced on the mailing list, we just pushed out our API. The API documentation has more information.

Basically:

http://github.com/api/v1/json/defunkt/github-gem/commits/master

There’s json, xml, and yaml. You can grab a list of recent commits or a single commit. More coming soon – join the discussion if you’ve got ideas.
