I'm new to git, and having done a fair bit of reading up I've set up a github account ready to get started.
I plan to combine elements of Inuit CSS (https://github.com/csswizardry/inuit.css ) with Bones (https://github.com/eddiemachado/bones ) to create my own starter framework for Wordpress projects.
My question is should I fork each of these projects and clone them locally, then edit/combine and upload to a new repository? The help info regarding forking appears to imply that you would fork a repository when you were looking to contribute to the original repository rather than create a derivative work, or perhaps that is just the most common use case?
The other option I can see is to just download the repository for each as a zip file, combine/edit and then upload them to a new repository.
Is there a benefit to either route or perhaps another approach that I might be missing?
