For you git fans out there I have just added a new method to download Nuitka from something I call the release git repository:
git clone http://git.nuitka.net/Nuitka.git
Then do your own modifications, and do:
git pull --rebase
each time there is a new release. You will be led through the merge process as usual. To reduce your differences, feel free to send me the patches you create with:
git format-patch <commit-id>
and I will incorporate useful stuff.
If you publish your own git repository, please be so kind and name it "Nuitka-unofficial" or similar, or else it might be mistaken with the real thing, and drop me a line about it, just so I know.
