How-To setup Git/GitHub for Indigo Plugins

All, I've written a simple How-to that will walk you through getting started with Git/GitHub. There are tons of ways of interacting with Git (the source control system) and GitHub (the website that can host Git repositories for sharing). This article presents just one way, but one that we think should work for everyone.

Feedback is welcome! Just recall that I wanted to make it as easy and general as possible so there are an endless number of options that aren't discussed. I don't intend it as a general Git/GitHub article so let's just keep it focused on the easiest way for people new to Git/GitHub.

One more note: this will put plugins into the user's repo, not the IndigoDomotics repo. Moving forward I think this will be the best way to handle new plugins. If a plugin becomes abandoned by it's original author, then we can discuss forking into the IndigoDomotics repo so that development can continue.
