Forking for Beginners

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around github, and while it’s been a slow process, I think my experience may be useful for other folk like me–those of us who have just enough knowledge (and the curiosity, and the really big eyes) to make a mess of things. So, I thought I’d make a screencast of my adventures in gitland–this video is basically me fumbling my way around forking a collaborative public repo, adding a file, committing it, pushing it, and then sending a pull request. I did edit it a little, to get rid of some of the dead time and add a few explanatory titles, but the basics are pretty simple. The video has no sound, FYI.
