True. But github also supports http(s) checkouts (so does bitbucket). We'll have to see how this plays out. FWIW: I did a test overnight and found that github has 100MB max individual file limits, and several of the videos we have on the web site are larger than that. It might be time to just upload those videos to YouTube or something; there's not a whole lot of value of having the individual .mov files available from our web site.
This idea of moving to git (and possibly github) is still in the idea stage; making sure the mirrors are ok with this is one of the data points we need.
