-For git repositories that we have control over, it's easy to use our home-grown [post-receive zephyr hook](http://web.mit.edu/snippets/git-hooks/zephyr-post-receive) to send zephyrs when somebody pushes. We can't directly edit hooks on sites like [Github](http://github.com). However, Github does support [submitting a POST request](http://help.github.com/post-receive-hooks/) to an arbitrary URL when somebody pushes. It would be cool if there was a site - probably running on scripts.mit.edu - that you could point Github's post-receive hook at to get zephyred whenever somebody pushed to Github.
