I'm afraid I don't understand your PS -- if you're having trouble, post to dw_dev with what you've tried and any error messages you're getting!
ah, yes, if you're having trouble converting to github, try the instructions on the wiki -- http://wiki.dwscoalition.org/wiki/index.php/Moving_your_Dreamwidth_installation_to_use_Github -- and if you run into problems, post to dw_dev with the error messages you're getting. If you don't have patches in progress, it might be easiest to ask for your 'hack to be reinstalled from scratch, but I'm not 100% sure if the reinstall script is currently working, since that's not my area. dw_dev can help!
