I've created a "harmattan" organization on github where I'll put all the open source apps that I write/wrote for Harmattan. I've invited other developers to do the same, so it's easier to find projects and collaborate. If you think that's a good idea, feel free to give me your github username, and I'll add you to the organization:

http://github.com/harmattan

I've already moved some of my apps there, and hope to see more stuff there soon It will hopefully increase visibility of source repositories for packages on apps.formeego.org (which currently doesn't have a feature to list and/or display the repository URL for packages uploaded there).

Please avoid any bikeshed discussions (Gitorious would have been better, Github sucks, etc..). Let's get some app repositories there and make it easier for others to contribute to our MeeGo apps!

Good move!
Yesterday, I am thinking the same that we should have global repository for harmattan open source applications. Also any re-usable codes, examples all should be hosted in the repositories. something like CPAN available for Perl language.

Not to compare github or gitorious but meego code is available in gitorious, There might be contributions to meego code once CSSU for harmattan picks up. So I feel it would be better if the repositories are in gitorious. Otherwise devs need to learn how to use both gitorious & github. It's not too late now to re-visit the host location.

Anyways, please add "asknet" (gitorious or github) to your list. Thanks!

As someone who just today put his project on Nokia Projects I ask: why github (or gitorious or bitbucket) and not Nokia Projects?

I've hosted another project on bitbucket, but choose Projects because of the tighter integration with wiki, forum, issue management en SCM. Also, Projects supports not only Git but SVN and Mercurial as wel.

Everyone added up to here. If you want, you can "publicize" your membership via the Github page (this basically means that you will be publicly shown as member) now.

If you have problems creating repositories, please post here (haven't tested it yet, but you should have the permissions to create repos).

I'll be staying on Github, because the projects I host there have metadata in there (Issues, etc..) that I'd like to keep. Also, I like the Github interface and features more than the Gitorious one, and in my experience, Github has been more reliable (more responsive and more uptime) than Gitorious, but that's just my personal opinion and experience.

There's gitorious.org/harmattan, but it's not very used. Feel free to push your repositories there if you are on Gitorious and want to avoid Github. Similarly for Mercurial users (Bitbucket?) and others.

If you want to keep it simple, or don't have a strong preference, please use the Github "harmattan" organization

I've used Github before Nokia Project Hosting was available. Also, FN Projects has been "hacked" two times last year, but hopefully this won't happen to them again..

Anyway, feel free to use whatever you like - if you don't have a strong reason to use one or the other, please use Github's "harmattan" organization, so we have a single place to keep the repositories. If you don't use Git, please organize something similar for the version control system of your choice This is about making things simpler and easier to find, not to decide the "one true hosting site".. (hint: having everything in a central place also makes it easier to mirror all these projects somewhere else via a script)

Completely agree! Whether it is gitorious or github or mercurial, there should be central place to make things simpler and easier to find. Earlier I just stated my view and I'm fine with anything; if the goal remains same.

Overall, this is a good start

I would prefer to use libre software like :

http://gitorious.org/harmattan

And use github as a mirror if it matters ...

Anyway this is a good initiative to merge our efforts ...
