It's quick and easy to backup a github project (yours or anyones) to your rsync.net account.
If you want to clone something from github into an rsync.net account, the syntax is:
ssh email@example.com "git clone git://github.com/LabAdvComp/UDR.git udr"
This clones the LabAdvComp/UDR repository into the directory "udr" in the root of your filesystem. If you would like to create a subdirectory in your rsync.net account (perhaps named "github") and clone into that, you would change your command line to:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org "git clone git://github.com/LabAdvComp/UDR.git github/udr"
Note the "git://" method in the above URL... This is necessary because the http:// or https:// methods do not work. You may need to edit the URL that github gives you on a particular projects page and change "https://" to "git://".
