Moving East… Big Pancakes w/ Applesauce

Lofi has a post on JavaLobby saying “ underestimates”. He may have some valid points ( is not just CVS). So my questions are:

a) Why are some projects moving to (e.g. OpenSymphony code)
b) Why would you choose vs.

Are people moving to as is too bloated? They want their Java projects on a Java site? They think that it will get more exposure there? Or maybe due to boredom, they just feel like moving it somewhere else. may not be perfect, but it is a start, and it will be interesting to see where Sun goes with the entire endeavour.

    I can tell you that the reason the Opensymphony code is moving to is because anonymous pserver access to CVS on has been unavailable 90% of the time for several months. may be more than CVS, but without CVS they’re nothing. Plus,’s other tools are pretty poor. Their bug tracker, for instance, is just crap.

    Ahh interesting. Thanks Jason. When will they use JIRA for bug tracking? ;)

    We use Jira, yes. is using Issuezilla, which I guess is based on Bugzilla? I don’t know, but it looks crappy.
