GitHub desired workflow...

Thanks for all the hard work with this transition! I'm sure once we're all
"over the hump" we'll look back and wonder why we waited so long.

Just so I'm clear on this, is the desired approach for each committer to:

== setup ==
1) clone macports/macports-ports to the local filesystem
== every change ==
2) make changes
3) 'add' changes
4) 'commit' changes
5) 'push' changes (to macports-ports)

Oh, and and to capture upstream changes, somewhere after 1 and before 5 (4?

a) git fetch
b) git rebase origin/master
It looks like git pull --rebase does both of those, so that's not too bad.

If I'm wrong, or if I've missed something, please let me know; there's been
more discussion than I've had time to follow of late surrounding this
