What is GitHub?

GitHub is a website offering source code hosting for free software projects. Its features include issue trackers, an easy to use web interface, a built in wiki software, and simple facilities for merging and branching.

GitHub is based around the version control system called Git. It uses Git to facilitate most of its basic features, like repositories, merging, and archiving.

How can I join?

You are not required to join GitHub to develop for Minetest. Most of the features are just convenience functions, and we can easily accept patches submitted in a text format, or bug reports by email.
