 georges will need to create an id_rsa.pub and to uploaded it to
github, which is exactly what he will need to do for working with
git.hands.com.  so please ask him not to use github, but to send it to
me and i will ask phil to add it to git.hands.com instead of github.

 no no no, wrong absolutely dead wrong: please, you *need* to
understand what the spirit of free software is about.  it is
*unbelievably* frustrating to hear people say for example "oh i will
release this code when it is ready because i feel inadequate or too
proud to let anyone help me" and then they don't frigging well finish
the damn job and nobody ever, ever benefits from their work.

 you've done an amazing job, doing something that nobody else has done
and you've saved people a vast amount of time in the future.

 please drop the ego, drop all considerations of "i am not worthy" or
"i don't know if my work is good enough", that is just ego talking.

 your role here is to serve others, and to help others to serve others
- that's what we're here for.  if you make it difficult - by releasing
things are zip files uploaded over ftp; if you make it difficult for
people to follow the history, then you are doing people a
*dis-service* by making it *harder* for them to follow what you've
done, not easier.

 there are very very good reasons why we're recommending and offering
the specific services and development techniques that we are, and it's
because we have over 15 years experience of working with and in the
free software community, and know what works.
