But where to place your open source apps for development and distribution?

(August 2011)
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:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmysqlautobac/
- 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:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/github.com#trafficstats
But sourceforge.net is better:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/sourcefor … afficstats

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/
