I've noticed that one rather well-known open source project (which I won't name so that noone focuses too much on that specific project) offers sources for download as a .zip via FTP instead of having them on GitHub.
To me looks like GitHub would be more convenient.
- It's free for open source projects
- It has change history and many other perks of a version control system
- If I want to change something I can just fork-change and then make a pull request instead of writing a long email explaining what to change in which file
That's just what I could think of in one minute.
Now what problems are there with Github that would make me prefer shipping sources as an archive via FTP?
