The github-backup package

[Tags: gpl, program]

github-backup is a simple tool you run in a git repository you cloned from Github. It backs up everything Github knows about the repository, including other forks, issues, comments, milestones, pull requests, and watchers. Also includes gitriddance, which can be used to close all open issues and pull requests.
