Hi,

As the number of github users I think use git will active more game programmers to contribute love2d.
An official mirror-repo on github may helps love2d more greater.

Bitbucket also uses git, you know. So there's no difference in usage from console or any git client :|

@Down:
Ok, you're right. I thought that bitbucket hosts only the git repos. Thanks!

LÖVE's repository uses Mercurial.

Besides, GitHub is or will soon be owned by MS. I've already closed all my repos there and I will be leaving it probably by the end of this year.
Thrust II Reloaded - GifLoad for Löve - GSpöt GUI - My NotABug.org repositories - portland (mobile orientation)
The MS-Github repositories I had have been closed after the acquisition announcement and will be removed in the near future.

I would love to see a conversion of the source code repository from mercurial to git. I think github as a hoster is a rather bad idea as most free software projects are moving away from it. I would rather see GitLab or similiar.
