Feature Request: Add Jekyll Archives on GitHub Pages #106
I don't believe this fits into the Pages roadmap right now. The plugin is high-touch, in relation to the file system, and is relatively large, for a Jekyll plugin, which creates a significant burden on our security team to review on each bump.
A quick code search suggests that there are as few as 54 refrences to the plugin across all public repos.
Thanks for the pull request. Jekyll archive is a great plugin. Heck, I'd even use it on my personal site if it were supported, but I don't think the time is right for global Pages support quite yet.
Anything added dilutes everything else.
You can get it to work fairly easily by creating the archive pages with a ruby script locally. Check ou how I create GitHub Pages compatible completley automated date and tag archives on my blog: http://mrloh.se/2015/06/automatic-archives-for-jekyll-on-github-pages/
A year later, a request to reconsider this on the roadmap.
An updated search shows it's up to 1,156 references. I think that statistic is a false statistic. It's essentially being misused 1,156 times since
All that is to say, I think it's not in use because it's not supported on the primary platform. Default support would increase usage. It would be a very welcome addition to the GitHub Pages platform since categories and tags are a basic feature of any blog or even changelog.

Another solution, we can build it with Travis CI and push it to gh-pages branch. I write a simple gist about this.
But supporting this plugin will be the most proper way. I think there are lots of people waiting for this.
