I'd imagine this is more for historical reasons. Seems like they're working on this: 
https://gitea.com/gitea/gitea

Perhaps it's unjustified, but whenever someone mentions Gitea the first thing I
notice is that *its own developers* host their project on GitHub...

that's supposed to be a direct replacement for it, and doesn't imply great
confidence in the latter.
