The error message indicates that the SSL certificate from github has
problems. Usually SSL problems can be traced to one of the following

* Stupid attacker
* Broken proxy
* local time skew
* broken local installation
* error at github

I could access https://github.com just now and was presented a certificate
from DigiCert with the SHA1 Fingerprint
CE:67:99:25:2C:AC:78:12:7D:94:B5:62:2C:31:C5:16:A6:34:73:53, valid from
05/27/2011 thru 07/29/2013.
