– Collaborating On Open Source Projects

Gitorious.orgCollaborating on open source projects can become difficult if only because of the number of participants that are often involved. The word “difficult” is not the most representative one, come to think of it.

“Sprawling” seems to be to me a more accurate one.

Gitorious intends to become the platform of choice when it boils down to open source projects that use Git. Through it, any project administrator can keep an attentive eye on people who are working on as many individual clones of his repositories as he wants.

That is, as a project administrator you can have as many project repository clones as you might need, and you will also be capable of having a timeline for each of your projects along with a comprehensive wiki. Besides, public contributions can be merged in an effortless way.

On the other hand, those who are volunteering their time and effort to any project can put their feedback forward and collaborate with every other individual who is also engaged in the same project. Having the chance to do so through such a centralized channel is one of the incontestable good features of Gitorious. In Their Own Words

“The best way to collaborate on distributed open source projects.”
