my personal selfish preference is GitHub
because so much other stuff is already there
( "billions of flies can't be wrong" ;-)
which makes it easier to work on various
different things:

  "One Place to rule them all, One Place to find them,
   One Place to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
   In the land of GitHub where the Sources lie."

Of course I know "easier" does not mean it is "better"
in particular not from a strict free software point of view:

But I think because in the end it is plain 'git'
nothing really evil could happen if at some day
GitHub might become unusable for free software
(in this case things could be hosted anywhere else)
and because it is free software I don't care if GitHub
monitors and evaluates all what goes on in GitHub
because all is public anyway (I see no real differece
compared to a public mailing list with public archives).
