@ godefroi - You could well be right - I just don’t happen to think so at the moment and the arguments you’re making don’t fit with my own experiences, so I’m willing to call this a noble experiment and press on. I think there are collections of code out there that people want to donate for public use and maintenance, without needing to personally commit to managing that maintenance long-term.
Forking is one model for distributed maintenance on abandoned or under-maintained projects, but then you get lots of forks with individual development histories (fragmentation). The OpenSourceHub location will offer a well-known location and higher probability of ongoing maintenance because of the broader audience over the whole repo.
That’s just my opinion of course and I’m prepared to be wrong. This is an experiment and time will tell.
