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.

(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.
