But where to place your open source apps for development and distribution?
Now... I started off by trying Github - sorry if you are a fan, but what a pile of shite, so bloody annoyingly clunky to get a project on there I gave up.
So the next few days I then researched others and eventually registered with Sourceforge.net - what a breath of fresh air after wading through the rubbish at github. I have put phpMySQLAutoBackup on Sourceforge:
- this only took an hour or so. Previously I spent [wasted] more time than that just reading and attempting to start a project at github.
Traffic - one reason why to choose one over the other:
Github does get reasonable traffic:
But sourceforge.net is better:

So to conclude:
Github was terrible to use and even worse to learn, and as it gets less traffic is not at all worth the effort.
Sourceforge.net is easy to use, has a very easy to use web-interface and gets the most traffic.
Save your time and go straight to http://sourceforge.net/
