To quote John Graham-Cumming ‏(@jgrahamc[0])

    Every time github goes down I think,
    "If only there was some way to use git

Please report back with your findings.

There's no great reason for a small shop to use Github rather than hosting the repositories themselves.

There is no great reason for a large shop to use Github other than for PR.


Github will be back, be patient.

Is it necessary to post on HN about every website down?

They must be a partner with GoDaddy.. :)

Look another github is down thread. And people still argue about the quality of hacker news submissions.
