Fetches PyGithub library into Pythonista (library patched to overcome strptime errors - _strptime missing from Pythonista version 1.1 and TypeError from strptime on second use - see http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=112916)

This version of PyGithub depends on dateutil which can be imported into Pythonista using this script.

Hi, how do you suggest we edit non-Python files once the repo has been cloned? I'd like to use this to update my Jekyll site whilst away from my computer. It's a great script and potentially the best way to push/pull GitHub repos on the iPhone.

Currently I'm able to use shellista to rename .md files to .py, edit them, and rename them again, but I have no way of committing the changes. Could you let me know how I might go about that?

Cheers,

Robert
