I am not a huge fan of relying on a third party for my DVCS access (as
mirrors they are fine of course).
I also don't really understand yet what authenticity properties git
does or does not try to enforce: if I pull sources from github, what
can I be confident about in my checked out tree? As I understand it
git doesn't even sign revisions, making me think anyone with direct
write access to the primary repo can manipulate the history, perhaps
