  It is clear to me, everyone has a better understanding of such choices 
than me, but if you can indulge me as I ask a few clarification questions:

1) I thought Git was the version control repo; and GitHub was [in 
essence] a site for Git hosting; with some "social networking" stuff 
thrown in.  Is it true that You don't have to use GitHub to use Git?
2) I thought the whole appeal of Git was it was very easy to fork 
projects (and later merge that fork back in).  Is that not the case?
