not be a popular suggestion, but... how about SourceForge
If for some reason you don't like SourceForge, there's always Savannah
(http://savannah.gnu.org), which provides much the same services with
a different political slant. It's not limited to GPL software, though.
I have a project at SF, and I don't like how the CVS is working since
6-7 months ago. It's working too slow, with frequent timeouts and lots
of connections resets (no, it's not a problem with my ISP, I have tried
from several places). And if you access CVS anonymously you get a
(free-of-charge) lag of 5 hours (public CVS is a mirror from the master
one, updated every 5-6 hours).
Another thing I don't like is that they now use DB2 (a commercial
database manager from IBM), instead of an OpenSource software solution.
They're switching more and more stuff that runs the site to
non-OpenSource software. Bad thing, I guess.
I would try BerliOS, Seul.org, Savannah or any other similar service
before SF. In fact, I'm thinking about moving away from SF.
It's only my opinion... not an important one. Just decide whatever you
think it's better for Lua and for you.
