The GitHub Branch Source Plugin is more of a "build all you have on
GitHub" plugin, where a GitHub organization with all it's repos and
branches are monitored, etc. AFAIK it only works with pipeline jobs.
To sum it up: GHPRB plugin is probably the first step towards GitHub
based development. The GitHub Branch Source Plugin comes into play when
a project decides to switch to pipeline builds.
