  • Sourceforge is traditionally a CVS/SVN host. I liked hosting my CVS and SVN repos myself because it's not easy to clone them and I didn't want to give up control of my change history to a third party. I saw lots of projects on sourceforge but I never ever considered using it myself.

    Since github is git based, this is no longer an issue. It costs me nothing to push my stuff up to github--I always end up with a full repo in my local copy. No history or metadata is out of my reach. I believe they even use git for their custom web pages--meaning even your project docs and such are similarly protected.

    With github you won't lose anything if they go out of business or become evil.
