+ - Where are you hosting your open-source projects-> 1

GWBasic writes "Where are you hosting your open-source projects? Are you happy with your open-source's project's web site? Which open-source hosting site do you prefer? There are so many new ones popping up (github, Google Code, CodePlex,) that I'd like to understand which new ones the Slashdot community prefers.

Specifically, I'm currently trying to find a good site to host my open-source project. Ideally, I'd like a web site that has both a message board and bug tracker. I'm very flexible on the actual program / protocol used for source control, although I have a strong preference for source code control systems that have an easy-to-learn GUI on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Most of my experience is with Perforce, so a protocol with a GUI that's about as easy-to-learn (or hard-to-learn,) is what I'm looking for. Perforce's Open-Source program is an option, although I'd rather not administer my own server.

For the past few days I've been experimenting with github after listing to Linus Torvalds talk about git. Although I agree that it sounds like git is theoretically better, I'm finding git's learning curve to be so steep that it's just getting in my way from actually getting work done."

Where are you hosting your open-source projects

  • I highly recommend the Atlassian (http://www.atlassian.com/) products, although I don't think they do hosting. They do provide an OpneSource license for bona fide Open Source projects. The Jira/SVN/Fisheye/Crucible combination might just be the best out there.

Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while.
