Didn't know about that, thanks.

Yeah, the network browser is nice, as are other GitHub features,
although I don't really have any use for them. :-) Maybe it's just me,
but I really prefer the "traditional" e-mail + patches way (even with
projects that use GitHub and even though I do have a GitHub account).
Git makes that totally painless anyway and the open discussion
possibilities are unmatched by the hosting sites' fancy features.
Maybe Web 2.0/3.0 whatever is the future with things like Google Wave
and whatnot, but right now it all just feels like too much hassle (no
unified UI, best-used-with-a-"modern"-browser, being tied to a particular
provider etc.) for too little or no profit to me compared to e-mail.
