[M3devel] Git, a call for participation

I have ssh set up with existing repository.  Do I need a different ssh for the Git, or will we use the existing one?
I seem to recall providing you with my email earlier for the authors file.
I can install TortoiseGit at some point and run a test when you are ready.
BTW, do I need to create a separate sandbox for Git, or can I just reuse existing CVS sandbox?

You don’t need to install anything on your computer to participate in Github project. If you have ssh enabled, you are ready to go. If not, then problem can be with corporate proxies running NTLM authentication. My company enabled github and bitbucket access without NTLM so I don’t have experience solving it, but I know it is possible.

I am not currently a member of GitHub.  From what I understand, this site provides some social networking functionality and requires that software supporting this functionality be installed on your computer.

1.      Is it possible to take advantage of Git for source code checkin/checkout WITHOUT also becoming a member of GitHub?
If so, what, if any, are the limitations of not being a member wrt the future of the CM3 repository?

2.      What are the security concerns with installing the GitHub software?

My company severely restricts use of social media (it is blocked via the various firewalls), so that may make use of GitHub more difficult in my situation.

I think I should be able to use TortoiseGit for source code checkin/out, since I currently use TortoiseCVS; however, I have not used TortoiseGit before, so there will be a slight learning curve for me I’m sure.

To proceed with planned conversion, I need developers to join github and connect me there (dragisha @ github). Once we have developers connected there, we can proceed and switch.
