Github will give your projects a bit of visibility. Search engines seem to
put GH results near the top... Also, they have a nice web gui for pull
requests. On the flip side, git is a distributed system but we're all
putting our repos on a single host (github). A single point of failure...

I have all my public stuff on github and my private stuff on a git repo on
my web host.
