Easy design collaboration and version control

Does something like GitHub exist that's optimized for design files?

I work with a worldwide team of people who need to be able to borrow and reuse each other's design assets. I'd like to have one central place where collaborators can find assets (mainly Photoshop and InDesign), fork them, and create their own versions. It needs to:
1. Be in the cloud, not self-hosted.
2. Be accessible through a web interface, not a plugin for Photoshop. We're all using a mishmash of Adobe and open source stuff.
3. Have an easy-to-understand version history system, in which people can indicate what changes they made. Again, I'm kind of thinking of Github as the model here.
It would also be super nice if people could export to various formats (PNG, PDF, etc.) directly from the web interface, but I'm not sure if that's even possible.
I can spend a little money, but free and cheap solutions are always great, of course.
