More specifically, I think the question should have stated:

at http://www.mythtv.org/download it says:

"If you would like to grab the current development version or just want 
to keep up with the latest fixes to the stable branch, you will find git 
checkout instructions at https://github.com/MythTV"

However, the "checkout instructions" do not exist on 
"https://github.com/MythTV" - at least I cannot see them, furthermore if 
you follow every link on that page you will still not find the 
instructions because they are not there.

As a user (and not a developer of MythTV), I don't mind what repository 
is used as long as I get checkout the latest version and also I don't 
think I should be forced to read the Git Guide to the Galaxy either.

I do think it's an unnecessary barrier to not include the following 
basic instructions (or similar) at http://www.mythtv.org/download:-

git clone git://github.com/MythTV/myththemes
git clone git://github.com/MythTV/packaging
git clone git://github.com/MythTV/mythtv

Best regards.
