Some of you may be aware that gitorious.org is closing down as it's been 
acquired by Gitlab.com

As I had a few things (including Pd-related e.g. Granita) on there I 
tried migrating to Gitlab with their automatic migration tool, which 
seems to have screwed committers (i.e. adding a totally unrelated user 
who only shares my first name (!))

My motive to use gitorious was: a) open source b) essential, no thrills 
and just worked.

I've also used Bitbucket lately and it's really nice.

So what are people using these days?
Anyone also having to migrate from Gitorious? If so what do they think?
Just use GitHub which 'everyone else' (TM) uses and forget it?

Given that even with the 'migration' tool working (and it seems it's not 
properly), migration is always a bit of a PITA (e.g. links pointing to 
Gitorious potentially broken..) I might consider something else

Thaks for any ideas sharing and hope even if way off-topic this might be 
of interst to other Pd-ers.
