We have all een complaining at times about our two repositories on
gitorious. First of all because they overlap - the one (openSUSE/art)
has both distro artwork and marketing things, the other (opensuse-
artwork) has only marketing things. The second complaint is that
gitorious isn't easy to work with.
For the first problem: I have moved the stuff from openSUSE/art to
gitorious where it seemed to make sense to me. I did however not ask if
you all were OK with that so I do that now - better to ask for
forgiveness and revert a commit than to ask for permission :D
If you are unhappy with the changes, let me know please! If you don't
have access to opensuse-artwork, let me know too :D
Second, gitorious is not perfect for us. The biggest issue, at least for
the upcoming 12.1 release, is that you can not download files from
there. At least, not if they are bigger than 1 MB or so. That is a big
problem. Now we haven't decided on a good successor yet but for the time
being I am going to clone our repo into Github. There you can, ON THE
WEBSITE, see differences between files, and you can download big files.
That solves at least the biggest issues... We can then, later on, decide
on a better solution.
Let me know what you think about moving to Github. Yes, it's not
perfect, but other parts of openSUSE are also moving there and we could
quite easily migrate what we have now to github and have something at
least a bit better while we look for a perfect solution for us :D
Github is great for a repo like this... their imaging tools  are
amazing, and downloads are much easier.
Bad news is that the tool itself isn't as open as Gitorious, but,
well... meh (for me).
For my part, I subscribe to the repos with Sparkleshare anyway, so its
all local to me.
