GitHub project links on the “Related Projects” page

Clicking on the GitHub project link in one of the top boxes at does not open the GitHub page, but the forums page. For example, if I click on the GitHub link in the box


then opens, even if hovering over the link displays

open “” in a new tab.

This happens with

  • Safari on macOS 10.13
  • Mobile Safari on iOS 11.3
  • Firefox on Windows 10

“Open Link in New Tab" and “Open Link in New Windows” from the context menu do work correctly though, and open

This is the HTML source code for one of the boxes (reformatted to show the structure better):

<div class="category-box-inner">
  <a href="/c/related-projects/swiftnio">
    <div class="category-box-heading">
    <div class="description">
      <div id="ember1264" class="overflow ember-view">
        <div style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px;">
           <a href="" class="onebox" target="_blank"></a>

I am not an HTML expert, but that looks like a violation of 12.2.2 Nested links are illegal to me.
