Agreed. My intention was just to use Github as a social way to collaborate
with others.

The disadvantage of having it hosted in the US is that in a SOPA-like
world, it'd be pretty easy to censor content or have it taken down. The
advantage of git in that scenario is that everyone's checkouts are complete
copies of everything ever, so hosting code there isn't a choke point for
censorship, IMHO.

Andy, maybe we should reach out to Github. I bet they'd be willing to help
us out in this case. Making Noisebridge a "group" is indeed the right thing
to do. With those, we can have many comitters attached to the group.
I'll try and email some folks.
