[argouml-dev] ArgoUML and GitHub

Message Hi,

I just raised this question in another e-mail to this list but I think a
dedicated thread might be good. I quickly used my mail client to search
for this topic but I couldn't find anythin; so bare with me if I'm
mistaken.

GitHub has clearly become one of the most popular platforms for
collaboration on Open Source projects; I dare say, it's todays most
popular platform.

Many projects have moved there and use the infrastructure plus the vast
user base to improve their projects.

A quick search for "ArgoUML" yields that there are currently 27
repositories on GitHub that deal with Argo. (Link:
https://github.com/s​earch?p=1&q=argo​uml&type=Reposit​ories&utf8=%E2%9​C%93
)

I'm not saying that by moving there thousands of people will currently
join ArgoUML, but I think that the barrier will be significantly lower:

- One can easily fork the project and commit changes; signing up on
  tigris.org is not necessary and might hold some people back from
  contributing a quick patch.

- Issue tracker is nicely integrated into the interface; discussion on
  Pull Requests possible.

- Contributing made simple: A simple click will create a pull request
  and hence notify the ArgoUML team of a new feature someone might have
  developed.

- Other tools support GitHub, such as travis-ci.org, which might be
  interesting for the CI issue we're currently having.

- One can easily use the Git workflow, no SVN needed.

- Use GitHub pages to build a decent website.



Personally, I'd like to see ArgoUML on GitHub but I haven't been very
active for more than 6 years now (I still want to say a quick "Hi
Thomas!").


I'm curious what you think.

Best regards
Christian
