jEdit in github
Submitted by sergi.mansilla on Sunday, 6 December, 2009 - 21:33
Hello,

I believe that switching the jEdit VCS to git/github would attract developers to the project. Several projects have reported great benefits contribution-wise when they moved to github (Erlang, jQuery, HelmaNG and Clojure being some of them). The reason is that the pull/push/branching system is amazingly convenient and lets everybody focus on real code and not maintenance. The interface is easy to use as well.

Is there any possibility that this would happen in the near future? I think it would be amazing for the project, really.

Cheers,

Sergi

I totally agree with that! Alternatively, Mercurial/BitBucket could be used.

The important thing to consider, imho, is to replace SVN with any decentralized SCM. I personally like Git, but some people prefer Mercurial.
