Attached to: Whither SourceForge?
I think of the two having different goals. Github is a code repository, where SF.net, search.cpan.org, rubyforge, etc, are release repositories. f.e., I release my code on both CPAN and Rubyforge and use the trackers there to deal with things (Rubyforge has list support, and TBH I have nothing on CPAN to warrant a mailing list so it's never crossed my mind to check). When I want to develop, or share test/beta versions, or share a hacking assignment on one of my projects with an interested developer, Github is a preferable alternative because all the tools are there to share code. I was previously hosting all my repositories myself, which didn't lack due to uptime/accessibility issues; but the UI on Github just makes everything easier, from being able to instantly fork repos to using gist (a pastebot), and actually being able to clone the results from the pastebot and merge/hack on them. HTH.

It's more-or-less the equivalent of: map { return; } @array The inline block returns to the previous position in the call stack, which is not the method the map was placed in, but the method above that.
