But browsing about etherpad-lite, I find the github site:

much more frienly than our gitorious one

From what I know, github is much larger in size (no. of users). Infact
openSUSE is one of the largest gitorious users.

they say "free for opensource"

waiting for our own one, may be this could be better? there is even a wiki
associated to the git account, âckages seems to be individually dowloadable.

github has its own wiki, bug tracking, and greater commercial backing.

gitorious apparently has better analytics, supports openID, has a wiki
of it's own, which seems a bit less powerful at first look, and could
be more willing to accommodate some of our eccentricities.

The "free for opensource" option extends to having public repos and
"public collaborators", whatever that means.
This part is infact similar to gitorious' policy as well.

but this only a 5 minutes scan :-(

The advantages github apparently provides seems to be present already
in openSUSE, albeit outside git(we have a powerful wiki, and the
bugzilla seems fine but for it's being encumbered to the Novell

Also github pricing and requirements for the gratis plans seem an
unnecessary distraction.

Even "if" we agree that github is better, is the shift effort
justified by the perceptive advantages? Do we really need a shift at
this point?

Besides, I assume most of us will be using CLI for regular access (I
do, but I only pull). Is there really any difference in content
management on the console?


As with jdd, I am no RCS expert. The ultimate decision should lie with
what the content creators find most comfortable.
