Ok ..... In english please ....
"GitHub is the best way to collaborate with others. Fork, send pull requests and manage all your public and private git repositories."
It sounds like to me that Niko is just giving them the code, so they can do the coding their way, to keep it an ongoing open source code ? But yet, there is a price !!
I have no idea what GitHub is or does ... but that may be the biggest Question of it all, How is Github better that people coding from this site?
