I decided to start doing some coding. I’ve been writing on LeanPub.com and they offer the option to use GitHub to save your book ‘source’, so that seemed like the place to start. I set up an account then realised I had to pay for a 'non-public account. I’m not quite ready for people to see my writing or code naked, though I like the idea of making some stuff available Free there later.
I’m now andywootton on GitHub and Bitbucket which allows up to 5 developers to work on a private project, free and also supports Git. As Bitbucket is from Atlassian, who don’t seem to have done too badly out of selling software based on Open-Source projects, my conscience remains clear. I was also joking about bits overflowing into bit-buckets in the 80s, so I claim prior art.
Are these sensible routes to a service-based SCCS or should I waste more time on something else to put off starting?
I’m using Linux at the fist/screen interface end. I assume it works about the same as Code Management System under DECwindows?
