Yes, Github is the way to go. Anyone can fork cyclone and work on the 
new objects in a new branch. When completed and tested, these objects 
can be pulled into the main repository. It might sound a bit daunting 
for the aspiring programmer, but it is certainly worth the learning 
curve. Github also offers an integrated issue tracker and forum function 
which allows structured communication between developers.

Git has numerous features and options, but only a few are needed to 
become productive. My "cheat-sheet" only has six.
