You need to create a repository that's shared by other users.  That's
what github is designed to do, but any sort of shared file repository
should work.

Normally, I think you'd start up by creating the shared repository and
then bring it down with 'git branch'.

I think you can also use 'git push' to create a shared repository
somewhere that other users can get at it.

Look at 'git push', 'git pull' and 'git merge'.
