Quick note about github at TestTWF Seattle

I thought you guys might like to know that our first all github-based TestTWF went off without a hitch.  After going through a few of them where we tried to use Mercurial (ugh) and Dropbox (marginally better), there were ZERO issues with getting people up and running with github. (and I'm talking about both people who were already githubbers + total newbies).

For one-stop-shop instructions on testthewebforward.org, I wrote up  the steps for the very basics newcomers needed to get going [1].  I watched multiple people walk through them on Windows & Mac perfectly.

Peter and I are still doing the work to review and merge the PRs into the CSS test repo, but this was a huge step in making test submissions from the community so much easier.

Nice work to all that made this happen over the last few months!
