  • SF has been undergoing a lot of positive changes lately. It is the only open-source hosting solution that provides all the features you need under one umbrella - version control, timeline, support forums and mailing list, bug tracking, website hosting, etc. Also, it can provide a lot of visibility by occasionally listing your project or news in a prominent location such as its front page.

    The downside for me is that the user interface is pretty messy and not as polished as in most modern two point oh apps. I am currently facing a similar dilemma and I am not yet decided if I will go for SF or use a combination of several tools (github for version control and issue tracking and google groups for support).

    • Fair point, although it's not as ad-cluttered as it could be, for what I pay for it ;-)

      I hope that most interaction will be via mail list, git/svn commands, and so on.

      I also like that SF can host a full custom homepage for the project - that's always been a nice touch.

      Thanks for the comment!

    • I use both github and google code for one of my projects. It works, and I like both, but if I were starting again from today, I'd be a lot more tempted to settle on just github. Purely from the consistency of having a single site for users.
    • I've always loathed SF and I might even go so far as to say I hate it. Every trip to SourceForge to get something I needed was one filled with frustration, disgust, and irritation, as something as simple as finding a module or downloading a file was always a process of figuring out where to ask, what to click on, and, even then, of digging through several pointless layers of garbage simply to get to the destination. It's like they're hurting for page-views and will do anything to increase them.
