Hmm.. I don't see how that would matter? I'm not sure it's even true,
certainly not for developers, in this case Git users.. it's not
possible to use Git and not be aware of its distributed nature. But
then again, imagining that indeed they didn't understand that, it
*still* wouldn't make a diffrence because it *is* distributed, which
means that there's nothing github can block us from doing. And as
Daniel said, nothing is changed relative to how everyone can still
contribute exactly as before - via the mailing list (re. the under-13
years old. And yes, that's silly by github.)
