oh! project hosting from Google Code

Everybody likes to pick on SourceForge. It's slow, CVS is unavailable for days at a time, it took years to add Subversion support, it has an issue tracker not much more advanced than a stone tablet, etc…. A handful of alternatives exist but none have gained much traction. This week, Google announced a new open source hosting service that could finally provide a real choice.

Time will tell, but I predict Google Code hosting will be a big hit. SourceForge isn't going away, but now it faces some serious competition. It's about time.
