Maven-enabled project hosting

mrdon has an excellent blog post explaining how to use GitHub with Maven. Not just read-only, either – mrdon’s solution handles pushing the git repository changes to GitHub transparently.

The post closes with a choice quote, too:

I’m convinced forks are a good thing for the software development community, especially if there is a solid means in place to track such forks in such a way that both parties benefit.
