Default Gentoo Prefix on github ?

Hey guys,

Please accept my apologies for the noise if this has already been discussed.

I was simply wondering if it would be a good idea to put the Gentoo
Prefix tree and bootstrap script on github.com. I found that most
projects who moved there got a lot more attention than in their own
corner since it is so easy to contribute issues, pull requests, etc.
(e.g. HomeBrew [1])

I understand that the entire Gentoo community is on a different
platform (i.e. bugzilla / cvs) and is certainly happy with it. Does it
even make sense to talk about it? Is it time to "upgrade"?

Let me know what you think.

Regards,

Nicolas

Do you really think that Github's bugtracker could be compared to Bugzilla?

Probably not at the scale of Gentoo, but for something like Prefix, I
believe that it fits the bill.

Since we are a close mirror of Gentoo Linux, it makes not much sense
to go farther away from Gentoo Linux. That would only make things
harder. We have enough publicity now for the amount of people working
on it.
