So is this the new official site, or a better designed version with permission, or some dude's idea for a better site or what? http://git.or.cz/ is still up and doesn't link to http://git-scm.com/

From the site: Source for this website at <a href="http://github.com/schacon/learn-github">GitHub</a>, which was forked from Petr Baudis's <a href="http://git-scm.com/">git.or.cz</a>

So it is not an official site. It's just a rewrite of the git.or.cz, to make it cleaner and more user friendly.

P.S. Can someone tell me the correct way to put href attribute in HN?

Thanks dude. But it just says: Urls become links, except in the text field of a submission.

But I want for example, "GitHub" to be appear as a link with value http://github.com/schacon/learn-github

I frequently see people saying, e.g. "blah blah github (http://github.com/schacon/learn-github)" and leaving the link plain. I haven't noticed any A HREF style link, at least; maybe this is intentional, to (weakly) reduce link spamming?

Much like preventing IMG links helps to keep the site focused on relatively intelligent discussion, rather than spamming, lolcats, rickrolling, and other bulletin board malarkey.

Not to be pedantic, but git.or.cz wasn't dubbed 'official' as far as I know, it just happened to be the only informative git site.
