** [tickets:#186] Moving tmux repo to Github**

**Status:** open
**Labels:** github
**Created:** Tue Apr 14, 2015 07:40 PM UTC by Karthik
**Last Updated:** Tue Apr 14, 2015 07:40 PM UTC
**Owner:** nobody

Is there any reason that the tmux project still continues to use SourceForge and not move to Github? I have not used SourceForge much in the past, so maybe my opinion might be incorrect, but I find it extremely frustrating to contribute code to the project through SourceForge. Just opening a Merge Request is a trial.

For a project as famous as tmux, I'm surprised to see almost no other commits apart from the main few contributors. I'm sure this is partially because of SourceForge.

I agree 100% with this.

We don;t click our fingers and it moves, there are lots of things to
consider, it will take work and there needs to be good reasons.

Indeed. Being sheep for the sake of blindly following what the
popular choice is now, isn't helping when we're using features from SF
which Github doesn't have. That's the fundamental crux; the
alternatives aren't there at the moment.

This entire conversation is basically moot, given I've already
outlined the tmux repository on Github can be used to do whatever you
like. Submitting patches can be done using git-format-patch, just
like a number of other projects do; git itself, for instance.

So, given the above, what does moving gain us at the moment? Nothing.

I'm not particularly concerned about whether tmux moves to Github, but I'm curious what features SourceForge has that Github doesn't.

Git can be used agnostic of trackers. You could have mirrors and possibly
accept pull requests on Gitorious / a hosted GitLab, Gogs instance, etc.

Write. Give it about 15-20m of serious thought and effort. Grab various
data points for your issue, esp links, log snippets.
