I am not developer of pkgdb2 but if I would, I would also choose github 
over fedorahosted.

The reason is simple. Fedorahosted lacks features, is unplesant and need 
byrocracy even to create a repository. I've already discussed that on 
devel long time ago and I was told that we do not want to make 
fedorahosted more like github -- most of you didn't even care. But 
unless we do, don't except the developers to use it if it's such a pain 
compared to github.


 From the ideological and polictal side, of course: Using github over 
fedorahosted is bad. From the practival part it's oposite.

I admire any Fedora dev who cooses fedorahosted, I really do. It's very 
nice of them. But please do not insist on it, while we lacks the level 
of user experience that github has. We aren't even close.
