Re: On and gitorious

As a dev, I'd welcome such a change for the following reasons:
Github/gitorious streamline the collaboration with their
publicpersonal branches / merging workflow. Changes from others can
happenthere instead of a premature merge in master.Features branches
are easier to share for invasive changes thatrequires several eyes
Collaboration can start earlier.
The personal activity view is also nice to keep up with all themodules
the dev is involved in.
Also I feel that having the wiki close to the code helps with
findingreferences. Not sure lgo have to switch, though.
Finally, I presume gitorious provide a nice admin backend compared
tomanual git and user management.

Happy coding.
