It is entangled, but it is important to notice that they are separate concerns. I do think the big issue is where to host it. Yes, fine, people have opinions on git vs svn vs hg, etc. But that boils down to 25% technical arguments, 25% what you are used to 25% what everyone else uses and then 30% religion to make sure the bucket overflows. But where to host it is a tricky issue. Ownership and control is one big argument for having our own servers. Githubs forking/merging process a big argument for going to github. Should you then decide that github is the place to host it, well, then git is the software to use. To be honest I see little point in just setting up our own git repository. Yeah, maybe git is better from some technical standpoints, but it's also harder to use, and the question then becomes just religion. What we would like to do, of course, is to have a self-hosted github. :-) (And that exists. Buuuuuuut... it costs $250 per commiter and year, so that's not an option, obviously.) //Lennart _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce https://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
