Just my opinion of course :-)

Your branch is not realy "in sync" it is only merged into somehow. Since you once have broken you master branch by committing changes that you did yourself (seems to be some kind of rebase) you cannot use your master branch anymore. Even if the files are the same and the commits look the same they have a differen hash because they depend on other commits than the ones in the yii original repo. the commit hash is generated by the whole content of a commit and though is unique. If you have the same commit hash you really have the same commit with same changes, same author, same parent commit etc...
The problem is that once you have pushed to github you are not able to revert/change history of a branch anymore, github does not allow that (for good reasons btw).
One thing you can do is set up a new branch, call it master2 or something like that and use it instead of master.
But you do not need to do that you can simply start new branches for pull requests with the following commands:
(I asume that your own fork is the 'origin' remote and the yiisoft/yii repo is the 'upstream' remote like it's in the github tutorial on forking)
git fetch upstream git checkout upstream/master git checkout -b name-of-your-new-branch
If you want to setup your master2, do the same with branch name master2.
Everything clear? Ask if there are questions

And they even banned that guy account as "he was trolling"... when in fact he was showing his point that GitHub is bugged big time....

Github have unsuspended the guy's account now, I think they dealt with it pretty reasonably to be honest, at least it wasn't a permanent ban.

On this website, the Yii download link http://yii.googlecod...10.r3566.tar.gz points to googlecode and his date is Feb 12, 2012.
If I want a more updated version of Yii (saying the one with that issue fix or that absolutely must have gii feature, can I get them by simply downloading the zip tarball from Github or have I to deal with some git commands ?
Let's go !

To get a version with the issue fixed you can use the github zip file... but you need to understand that this is a development version... it can happen that an another issue is possibly under development and not functional...
If you want just the fix for a specific issue then you can get just those files fixed with that issue and replace the one in the release version.

Not needed, Github has built-in SVN support: https://github.com/b...-client-support
