For contributing to Drupal, are there any organizations out there that ask individual developers to use an organizational Git account (vs. a personal Git account) to make commits to projects? Are organizational accounts common in the Drupal community? Why or why not?

Some of these may seem "elementary", but hopefully folks will humor me.
First question - Is anyone aware of good examples PTO websites out there? I'm especially interested in ones running on D7.Read more
