major software / open source software ?
So the question where is the major software being hosted doesn't make much since. Now a days it could be put any where google , sourceforge , savannah...million other sites.
savannah list these potential places
Software projects for hosting projects, with their source code:
* Savane: Savane clean-up - Summary [Savannah] and https://gna.org/projects/savane - what we use! (PHP, Perl)
* Trac: The Trac Project - integrated SVN/wiki/tracker for a single project; variants for other VCS exists as non-official plugins
* InDefero: Indefero - Code Hosting and Project Management - mimics Google Code with a clean and simple interface, git repos need to be created manually, Apache has write access on SVN so beware of security/isolation if you're hosting more than 10 projects (PHP)
* Redmine: Overview - Redmine - multi-projects, integrated tracker/wiki/browser/gantt (Ruby [on Rails], GPLv2+)
* LibreSource: http://dev.libresource.org/ (Java/J2EE, SQL/GPLv2??)
* FusionForge: FusionForge: Welcome - forked from the same original code base than Savannah, a long time ago in 2001 (PHP, GPLv2+)
* Tuxfamily: TuxFamily: Free hosting for free people - Savannah-like free software hosting facility - code
* http://repo.or.cz - first public Git hosting facility, runs a modified version of gitweb as the main interface + a minimum chroot'd environment + a few crons - code (Perl + shell)
* Gitorious: Gitorious - Git hosting with another web viewer - code (Ruby on Rails)
* ShareSource: ShareSource » Open source code and project hosting. - code
* Alioth: Alioth: Welcome - aimed at Debian projects - code
* Launchpad: https://launchpad.net/ - centered on Bazaar and Ubuntu (Python, AGPL3, but non-free artwork) - code
* freeHg.org - this site is ahem now defunc, but I could trace a copy of the code here code
* Allura: http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/ - SourceForge? apparently saw the light and went back to free software development with Allura; can somehow check the coverage of the released code? For instance, do they provide the scripts to mass-installing and mass-maintaining mediawiki/trac/etc. that powers their service?
(Note that we do not list projects that advertise a proprietary version)
Basically I am trying to understand how the where the bulk of the code evolved from and how it got distributed (i.e the flow of the code to different repo's )
To make the analogy linux and most all other operating systems branch from unix. There are many sites displaying the different branches of linux os's came from.
But I am curious more about where the different open source projects first got started/host from.
I know keeping track of the major stuff/code now a days is a lost cause for open source since anybody can work on it.
