May love2d planned move to github?

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.

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.

I don't think MS will do some evil things to github user's repo, have a giant company may help github better.
I do also use bitbucket and gitlab with my friends and colleagues.
You can auto sync your git repo to gitlab or bitbucket, that's very convenience.

Yes, git community is more activity, that's can help love2d to evolve.
At least have a official repo mirror, github users can post issue like google's golang mirror repo (now that's not mirror only).

Now I found this github user, start a git repo with auto sync hourly.
https://github.com/codecat/love2d-mirror

But, I strongly hope that have official git repo of love2d.
Like this old repo https://github.com/love2d/love

Anyway, I like love2d, and hope love2d prosperous in future.

MS is already doing evil things.

By the time what they do affects users directly, it will already be too late.

I don't mean to suggest that Microsoft is worthy of our blind trust, but the example you provided seems rather benign. So GitHub is getting a feature that its competitors have. That seems like a normal, healthy, competitive market, not an attempt at suffocating the other platforms. Also, because git (like Mercurial) is distributed, all of the code and history of the project would be safely contained in everyone's clones. Basically, even if Microsoft stamps out open source repositories, every single contributer would have the means to upload the entire project to another platform.

Just my 2 cents.
