Great.

For anyone else using github as an external repo, github allows an svn 
export and that works fine. So, no more manual updating of the modules! 
The only isse is that the svn export is only for the master branch. Which 
means that I will have to change the branching convention for my modules, 
but that is easy.

What is the HTTP URL meant for? I tried pointing it to a zip file of my 
module and it says "Sorry, we can only handle zip and tar.gz files at the 
moment".

Thanks a lot.

Aditya
