Getting the source code

Arcemu uses a Source Control Management system called GIT.
The role of source control management is to maintain records about the changes in the controlled/tracked files.
So that we know who changed what and when, and if needed we can go back to earlier versions.
NOTE: This is very different from a simple file storage, therefore when you get the Arcemu source code, you don't just download some files, actually you download all versions of all files we have in our repository.
