It depends on what you want to do. For a one-off patch there is no 
reason to use git and clone the repository. If you want to continue to 
contribute, keep your working copy up to date, and be able to push 
changes, then using GitHub makes sense.

If you are doing QGIS work and wish you had SVN access, then the git 
route is for you...
