Regardless of all the warnings, let me congratulate you David! It 
appears your previous attempts at using git in the context of gnucash 
has given you enough confidence to store your own project in git (and 
github) as well. Nice job!

And well done to scratch your own itch too.

And (lastly) thanks for sharing what you did. That's open source/free 
software at its best!

Yes, the warnings still very much apply, but I wanted the other side 
being said as well :)
