comment Is it advisable to ask employees to create 'work' GitHub accounts?
For maintaining good security standards for GitHub organisation members, you may be interested in gu:who, an automated bot we built at the Guardian: theguardian.com/info/developer-blog/2014/apr/11/…

comment Why is there no Git client for Android?
@al-everett that depends what you mean by 'free' :) Agit's been free as in speech (ie open-source) since launch - and it's price in the Android Market hasn't changed.

comment Get code from one open source project and add it to another
Can you edit your question to point us to the relevant file and functions you want to copy? Ideally provide a link to the file on core.svn.wordpress.org

comment Why is there no Git client for Android?
I just realised that my answer to the question: "Hey, I just wrote one!" fulfils your wry prediction that "one will be implemented at some point" due to the tendency of programmers to wildly implement whatever comes into their heads. You're right of course, I did feel compelled to write it, and the points you make about creating code on your phone are all valid. So, in response... when I was writing Agit I concentrated on 'read-only' use, and left out commit&push for later. It's used as a tool for casual code review/following OSS, and has far lower network requirements than a web-based app.
