Sourceforge.net or Github?

Sourceforge.net or Github?

But where to place your open source apps for development and distribution?

I started off by trying Github - sorry if you are a fan, but what a pile of shite, so bloody annoyingly clunky to get a project on there I gave up.

I then researched others and eventually registered with Sourceforge.net - what a breath of fresh air after wading through the rubbish at github.
I have put phpMySQLAutoBackup up there now:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phpmysqlautobac/
- only took an hour or so (I spent [wasted] more time than that just reading and attempting to start a project at github)

Github does get reasonable traffic:

But sourceforge.net is better:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/sourcefor ... afficstats

So to conclude:
Github was terrible to use and even worse to learn, and as it gets less traffic is not at all worth the effort.
Sourceforge.net is easy to use, has a very easy to use web-interface and gets the most traffic.

Save your time and go straight to http://sourceforge.net/
