Re: Devel list at SF


Just a personal feeling: I think we should try and stay with a big project 
hosting site for the main part, because there are several problems I see 
hosting on a personal/private server: What happens, if the owner of the 
server cannot host us anymore? What happens if he/she has no time to maintain 
the server for a while? What happens if the hoster and the developers get 
into an argument?

I don't mean this personal, but these things have happened to other projects 

So, just to throw in another candidate for project management: Has anyone had 
a look at Google Code / Groups?
