git for source code management?

I was wondering if anyone is using git for source code management (rather than SVN). The client is available in Cygwin, or msysgit can be used (on Windows systems); and Github offers free source-code hosting for open-source projects.
We’re considering this, as we don’t have the infrastructure to set up a SVN server.
Any thoughts?

This is actually talked about at a greater length here:

Github is great if you don’t mind your code being accessible by other teams (which may or may not matter to you). If privacy is important, I’d go with Beanstalk (, a subversion host whose plans beat out Github’s private plans (along with providing a free plan).

That has a nice discussion, see also my thread dedicated to the subject: C and LabView version control with Git](
