The Council of the District of Columbia posts updates to the D.C. Code via GitHub, a site that allows users to host and edit digital code. But Github does more than just allow the city to digitally publish laws—it also ensures a higher level of legal review. And not just by attorneys.

The “Git” in GitHub is an open-source version control system that stores all edits in a central location/repository. You can “fork” a repository and create a new project based on a project that already exists. You also can make a “pull request” that allows you to modify a project, a revision which an administrator will decline or accept.
