I'm fine with this.  I *may* have some time this weekend, but not a
lot.  I promised I'd use this weekend to clean up my office so I wont
really be online much.

Also, I'll need some help with:

1) setting up the repos to point to github.  I suspect this just
requires setting up an origin or something to properly push, but I'm
still a git newbie and would like to get someone more knowledgable to

2) writing the gitolite hook script(s) to push the updates up.  Again, I
want to make sure it's done right.

Once we do this then we should make sure that the only account that can
write into the github repos is the code-gnucash-org account that I set
up specifically for the server automation.
