Well said. Along those lines, for those that would rather not use the
proprietary system that is GitHub, we've had good luck over the years
with SCM manager . It's BSD licensed but quite polished and very
stable, and simple enough to get going on a VPS or similar. Also has
native git / hg/ subversion support so you don't have to use one SCM
only. Back the VPS up to another location on schedule, and data loss /
corruption should be mitigated.
