>From me, the key advantage of Github is the functionality to easily discuss code in pull requests and the one-click merging where appropriate. It takes me much less effort to respond to a Github pull request where I have all the relevant information to hand than an email with a patch or a request to take a look at a branch in subversion. For projects I work on in my own time that often makes the difference when it comes to responding in a timely manner. Github certainly has it's problems too, but it has an api for scripting which makes it possible to send better commit emails or integrate with Launchpad for bug tracking if someone wants to put the effort in. I don't really have an opinion on whether Github or a repository hosted on a zope.org server is nominated as the ZF's canonical repository (presumably with a pre-receive hook that checks all commit authors are known to have signed the contributor agreement.) With DVCS it shouldn't really matter. It's access to improved tools that's important for me.
