All the info about the things you can do on fedorapeople is here:
Paul: Is there a specific case where someone was outraged by having to
wait to get a fedorahosted project and stormed off to google code
instead? And, frankly, do we care? Is our goal to get angry, impatient
developers to host their code at fedorahosted?
Outraged, not that I'm aware of. That shouldn't stop us from seeing
if there are specific improvements we can make that lower contributor
barriers. Our goal is not to encourage angry, impatient developers,
but simply to make sure that we make things as easy as sanity allows
for everyone to work with our project.
I'll take on the role of $RANDOM_NONANGRY_DEVELOPER to demonstrate. I
hear about Fedora Hosted from a marketing related activity like an
article on the web or word of mouth from a friend or a list post. I
google it and arrive at the top link, http://fedorahosted.org
Neither the FAQ nor the New Project instructions tell me that I have
an alternative available, the fedorapeople.org
route. A wiki search
for 'git repo' or 'git repository' doesn't tell me either.
Wouldn't just adding a FAQ entry be an easy way to give people more
information without requiring them to scour the wiki?
Patch attached as a suggestion.
