Making Your Own Copy (Fork) of Sage Notebook
======================================================
You need to do this only once. The instructions here are very similar
to the instructions at http://help.github.com/forking/ |emdash| please see
that page for more detail. We're repeating some of it here just to give the
specifics for the `Sage Notebook`_ project, and to suggest some default names.
Set Up and Configure a Github Account
=====================================
If you don't have a github account, go to the github page, and make one.
You then need to configure your account to allow write access |emdash| see
the ``Generating SSH keys`` help on `github help`_.
