Time for an update on how things are with git and biopython.

That works fine. I've set up a crontab script
(/home/bartek/github_backup.sh) on dev.open-bio machine which fetches
the current github branch and saves it to
/home/bartek/biopython_from_github. Then it creates a "bare
repository" (/home/bartek/biopython.git) which can be then used by
others. If you have an shell account on the dev machine, you should be
able to clone it over ssh with the following command:
git clone ssh://_YOUR_USERNAME_@dev.open-bio.org/~bartek/biopython.git
if this is put into a directory accesible via http, one can also clone
(anonymously) over http. I don't have an account on biopython www
server, but I was able to put it on my server (just to check if it
works). You can fetch it like this:
git clone http://bartek.rezolwenta.eu.org/biopython.git
In conclusion: it works. I would say, that the next important step is
to decide when to stop commiting to CVS... I'm just waiting for a
signal to terminate the updates from CVS to github and we are done.
In the meantime, it would make sense to make it more stable which
involves some technical details (mostly related to user accounts)
Namely, we need to
- set up these scripts on biopython account instead of my own (see below)
- decide whether we want other things to be done by these scripts
(generating src tarballs, etc)

This would come in handy now. Anybody knows how to access this account?
