+1 for Github!



Rationale

Github is a social coding platform. What does that mean? Anyone can submit a pull request (esentially a patch). An admin of the project can easily review the suggested patch, comment on it (discuss with submitter and everyone else) and even merge in simple patches from the web without even opening a source control system.

Any commit can be commented on by anyone, even down to single lines of code. I bet this can be really useful in review processes as OWASP people sit around the world. Being able to discuss code directly in the context of code is really useful.



Why git instead of SVN?

Using git instead of SVN, also makes it easy to create feature branches, allowing you to explore and collaborate on a piece experimental or new code, and resubmit it back to the master when it's stable or discard it if you decide you don't want it in master after all.

And it's blazingly fast as well.

I was thinking of that too (first I was going to try to see if it is possible to change it without deleting)

Hi guys... I suggest to delete OWASP as regular account and create it as Organization that in github is free (of charge) for non profit oepnsource communities like us.
https://github.com/blog/674-introducing-organizations

Within the organization everybody's account can added and we can fork our project also into the Owasp organization when we think our project has reached a good maturiy level.

Just my 0.02€

Hey all,

Yeap its me; I'll set you up with what you asked for.

There is also an owasp page detailing how to setup a repo, etc.

For the record any private repos are not welcome, etc.

Many thanks,

Yiannis
