The easiest way, is to create appropriate branches on github, and then
let Chris know what those branches are called.  For example:

master  equates to the master branch of MythTV
fixes/0.25  equates to the 0.25 version of MythTV

It looks like those have already been created for blue-abstract, so it
is just a matter of letting Chris know, so he can make the
configuration changes to pull the appropriate versions.  Once Chris
sets it up, then those will automatically sync every day.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
