Re:Not competing competition?

You don't have to directly compete with something to actually be in competition (regardless of what the definition is)...

The problem here is that both SourceForge and this GOOG offering have some major problems in regards to hosting projects. The fact that the GOOG one doesn't seem to support file downloads is a major f**k-up... Most people want file downloads (I know I do when I submit my project AND download others) without it you're left with interacting with the SCM... urgh...
