[torquedev] Proposed Migration to GitHub

We have been evaluating options for better coordinating our development
efforts with the community, and we're very interested in migrating the
TORQUE project to github. Github is a website for hosting open source
projects and coordinating efforts in the open source community. Feel free
to look around and check what the website offers - its essentially an
integration of hosting the project and tracking the issues in the project,
along with many 'social' tools designed to help coordinate efforts, such as
following a developer or a project.

The big caveat to this is that changing to github would discontinue use of
subversion and switch us to git. (FYI: Discontinue means no new check-ins,
not downing the server) There are many websites that document the
advantages of using git vs. using subversion, but for those that are
unfamiliar with it there aren't always 1-to-1 switches for commands.
However, for the most common things that our community members do -
checking out and creating diffs - it works pretty much the same way.

What are your thoughts on this switch? We believe that this switch will
greatly benefit the community.
