Security Kit on GitHub

I was planning to do this a long time ago, but this, that and the other delayed me. Finally, I've registered at GitHub and added repository for Security Kit. In short, that's the module for Drupal CMS which provides with few options to improve the security of your Drupal-based site. It aims to simplify the process of setting up security features which exist in modern browsers (CSP, Origin, X-Frame-Options etc.).
Present situation in web security indicates that regardless huge number of hacks and all these talks about "every site needs to be secured", the number of vulnerabilities does not decrease. Just take a look at XSSed. So, browser companies decided to add more built-in features to harden the web. They are mostly implemented with HTTP response headers and all the website owner/admin has to do is to add one.
Still, many people have no idea about such things or they don't know how to do this. That's the reason of creating Security Kit and, previously, SafeClick (which is so highly tailored, just for Clickjacking, so I decided to move it to Security Kit and close it).
Even though Drupal recently migrated to Git from CVS (thanks!), I plan to develop SecKit on GitHub along with other projects, which I hope I will soon finish (at least to make them public).

P.S. I do really hope and expect collaboration.
