I'm used to CodePlex, and I've heard a lot about GitHub, but haven't looked around much there yet. What are the best social coding sites that tracks commits, interesting projects, etc? (From a large community and popularity standpoint)

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking us to recommend a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Programmers as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it." – gnat, MichaelT, Kilian Foth, GlenH7, World Engineer
Best example of "social coding" I know of. Everyone forks everyone and everyone is okay with it! How much better could it be?
//yep hg is better. ;)
I have a public facing SVN server that runs from my basement. I would have used a free one but I have already crossed the size limit on most free services. And I am not going to pay for something I can run my self. I already had the server running in the basement so it took next to no time to through SVN on it.
It is not something I would use to mass distribute code with but it works for me at the moment.
EDIT: as pointed out by the comments the above is not tied well to the social part of the question. soo...
The SVN server I run is public facing (Anyone has read privs). I have used it to share source code among friends or as examples for blog posts. None of this has generated enough traffic to warrant using anything else. The reason this works for me is I have not needed the added features of Github, codeplex, Sourceforge, or whatever else is out there. This is mainly due to just needing a place to store code.
Sometimes the simplest solution is the best and in this case for me it is.
