Apart from GitHub and Dropbox (or even our very own server that we SSH into), what 'free' online thing can my friends and I use as the central repo in git? The thing that bugs us about GitHub is that the free projects are all public. Are there any alternatives to github?

    Also, how do I encourage my friends to use git instead of just regularly backing up the entire project directory into patches and tarballs by date?

    There are some alternatives, e.g. sourceforge. But i don't know them really good, i work mainly with dropbox in simple projects because it's way easier and more comfortable^^. On bigger projects we use a network drive on the subject group's servers - pretty easy with linux and samba.

    I would just shell out the $7/month for GitHub man. It's worth it. Haha. Butttt if you don't want to do that using your own server is the best option. If he needs convincing, make a copy of the code in a git repo, commit it to get it started, then go bury annoying ASCII art all in his code. Then use "git checkout ." to remove it in one command. BOOM. ;)
