I would still like to see us host the "master" read-write git repo on, but obviously we can sync it to github.  It would be
silly (IMHO) for the windows builder to pull from github when it could
pull from "local" sources.

I recommend we take the same approach as the MIT Kerberos Team for
transitioning from SVN to GIT.  I'm working with them to try to acquire
their transition scripts.  The scripts normalize the log messages in the
transition, or so I've been told. This means, however, that the current
'github' (and any existing git repos) would become obsolete, but I don't
see that as being a problem in general.
