  • What you missed on GitHub is:

    • You can watch repositories and follow people
    • Every repository has a [Fork] button
    • Creating a new repository has minimal cognitive load (3 text inputs and away you go) compared to SourceForge project creation; also, last I knew, SourceForge tried to encourage you to find and join a similar project instead of starting your own

    GitHub is MySpace for Hackers []. It’s about coders and the stuff they do, throw-away hacks and big projects alike, not about faceless projects run by barely identified contributors.

    (And in any case, regarding your knock-out criterion, last I looked at the SourceForge mailing list web archives, they blew chunks. Admittedly that was a long time ago and maybe they’ve overhauled that part. But I never had much interest in the site anyway, and only ever used it out of necessity.)

    • There seems be a lot more to it than just the tools, I think you're saying. This is really useful stuff, thanks for taking the time to respond.

      You mention the SF mail list sucks - no argument there! - but all I want to do really is replace the CPAN Forum, which sucks even more than that!
