Just looked at everything except for the MAN pages and the Book. Like what I see, and know the "basics" about operating GIT now.

That's just a pile of zip files; that's not what sharing code is about.
You don't zip it up - impossible to contribute.
Have a look at some existing projects on github to get an idea how things are done.

Last time I used github there were no such restrictions.
TBH, I don't believe there are now, you must be missing sth.
But you might want to consider gitlab.com instead.

I'll try again, and see if it changed back.

You might want to set up ssh connections first, that makes pushing from your local repository much more comfortable.

Also, IIRC, when I signed up for github they offered me a tutorial that had me do exactly what you're wanting to do. It was a guided tutorial and is probably still an option for you.

Git for windows is pretty cool! I'll keep that in mind.

It turns out, that the 25MB restriction and the folder upload issue is only with the website as far as I can tell. Other ways do NOT have this restriction. I just used the desktop app to put them as I now want them.

Links given again:

and what it relies on:

Please tell me if these look a little better. I'd now post the zips, when I need to release and as binaries, which they basically are.

In a few days, even though it's not that impressive yet, you will be able to buy a working version of PNF, WITH desLib, for $7.26 per CD. That's $5 plus standard markup! You will be able to purchase the stable version, a-a-t, as well as desLib a-a-d, at Hidden Treasures in Ellensburg, WA, US. That's:

Hidden Treasures
----------------
405 N Main St
Ellensburg, WA 98926

But this is the only store in the world that has it on CD. I have 5 copies available right now.

So, yes, I want to make money at it, but I also want to begin to collaborate on it, and definitely in this case, allow everyone the same rights!

Essentially, you want the source code in a git repo, and not the compiled result.
And not zipped-up source code but the whole tree, all files.

OK. I get it now. And I fixed mine as soon as I knew how.
