Curiously, Metasploit also switched to GitHub recently:

There may actually be some extra exposure from using GitHub as compared
to setting up own git hosting.

So maybe we should just use GitHub for real.  This is not the same as
using external hosting for e.g. CVS, which I'd rather not do (if we were
to use CVS).  The design of git avoids many drawbacks of using
external/untrusted hosting.

BTW, currently gives this sample

git clone

We may want to use git:// there instead.  My minimal build of git on Owl
(without libcurl) lacks support for http and https URLs, but this works
just fine:

git clone git://
