Fwd: Top Downloaded Projects; Open-Source Social-Collaboration Software Is Featured Editor's Review

Even more interesting is the new GitHub integration. Should we use it to
synchronize the Git repo at SourceForge?

When I revisited the current Git page on SF,


I stumbled over the other two tabs, SVN and Bazaar - it's a bit
irritating to have three versioning tools online. At least the SVN tab
has content but couldn't we move that to github and close SVN and Bazaar?

*A Closing Note from Your Community Team...*

Many people have files on GitHub and Google Code and want to share these
existing files on SourceForge to take advantage of our distribution
know-how, our popular analytics tools, and our extensive Open Source
directory, which exposes users to a wide selection of titles and
improves your project's chances of getting downloads. That's why we
created a tutorial

to illustrate SourceForge's distribution advantages, and show you how
easy it is to link a SourceForge project with an existing GitHub or
Google Code project.

SourceForge is proud to offer you the ability to toggle between GitHub
from the SourceForge NavBar and SourceForge's download page from your
GitHub directory, making file sharing a breeze!

That's it for your February SourceForge Update. Stay tuned for more
exciting developments and announcements.
