PostSubject: Move the Repository to GitHub ?   Tue 11 Dec - 12:56

I've been thinking about changing the system that stores the Multiverse sourcecode. It is currently on SourceForge but I've been thinking about GitHub. GitHub is a much more modern and easy to use system that would make accessing the sourcecode a lot easier. In addition it has very handy "social media" integration that would be cool.

Any thoughts ?

Just Randomly Googling...

http://adam.heroku.com/past/2009/1/20/github_vs_sourceforge/

Not an expert on vcs.

I guess, for me, it boils down to the level of control the team exerts over the repository.

As long as the main stable branch is obtainable I'm good with it. Very Happy

Happy Holidays santa

Ultimately, I do not think it matters but what is the concrete benefit of moving the code? What's the disruption to the community? Do the benefits outweigh the disruption?

A lot of people were having a hard time "getting" the code. Github has easy to use tools for windows and linux to connect to a repository and get the code.

Although perhaps its been addressed by the inclusion of the code in the Multiverse Complete download.

The decision is still in thought.
