I want to start an open source project. Where's the best place to host it?

Currently i am into kernel development for about one year and the time has come to release the source as openSource to be able to work together with different people. Therefore i need some tools and apps to handle this. For example, a wiki/documentation, a bugtracker, a versioning system like svn or git etc. However, i have never developed with a community that way. Are there any recommendations you might share with me?

I think github is good place to start, you have versioning, wiki and issue tracking. It's free for open source projects. You can follow projects, friends and be followed too of course.

Good luck with your project.

The free account on github allows me only public repositories and not private ones to test a little bit, so i would like to know whether there is a github "application" to run locally on my apache to test it out before sending everything up there. –  Christian Ivicevic Jul 2 '11 at 8:35
So if you want to try git on your developer machine you can read more about git here http://book.git-scm.com –  Murilo Terrabuio Jul 2 '11 at 18:17
