Migrating open source code repositories from CVS to GitHub
Remember that GitHub publishes every detail of your project work: If you enjoy writing insulting code comments or commit log messages, it's a good idea to stop doing so and clean up the repository before publishing it; GitHub will post whatever you write as search engine fodder. Things that were previously only accessible to a few developers in a hidden CVS repository are now suddenly available to your grandma and grandpa on a normal HTML page. Before you commit, make sure you take a close look at the content.
