Background Introduction

It would seem that in order to get anything done, with respect to my software development projects, I can either use Sourceforge, or Google Source, or create a personal project management system myself.

I am not all that pleased with Sourceforge ( I have tried to work them a few times in the past and it has always felt like dragging an anchor along with all the other project heavy lifting required. There isn't any one specific thing that makes Sourceforge difficult to use, it is more like an emergent result of many smaller issues that add together exponentially. My largest issue is that their whole interface style is so anti-ergonomic that it hurts. It's further telling that many of the more successful projects have their own site for documentation and forums only using Sourceforge for the distribution of releases and likely the source code version control services at the core.

Google Open Source Project Hosting ( is a lot cleaner than Sourceforge. I have not had an open source project kicked off yet that would let me experiment with using their services. I do have a number of projects which I intend to make open source so there are some opportunities in the future.

If course there is also GitHub ( which is very attractive. However, it isn't as comprehensive a tracking system as Google's project hosting. Still there is the commercial aspect problems in that I don't expect to be getting tons of money from any of this, so paying the monthly fees seems a bit of a waste.

In the mean time there is the issue of what to do with all my cruddy personal code, some of which I want to publish. For a majority of my code it would be in my best interest (for my reputation) to keep under lock and key. Yet, still I want a web based browsing systems, a continuous integration mechanism, and a source code version management system. Which means I need to set something up that can let me work. This project will be document the work done to achieve a shared project management system.
