Hi Enrico,

in principle you have to put something like

git push --mirror your_github_repository

under .git/hooks/post-receive (in the local geany repository). When
creating the github repository, you should create a new public/private
key pair and make sure that the keys are available for the user who
runs the git command. If you have multiple keys or there are several
users, you may use this technique:


(Disclaimer: I've never used it myself so I can only hope this works.)
