I’m of mixed feelings on this.
There’s a significant part of me that wants to see codeshare become an archive only, with no further development other than ensuring that the code there is always accessible.
Instead, I’d sooner see GHI create a library on Github, Bitbucket, Codeplex, etc, or create something similar to what mBed has, so that interested parties can submit patches/pull requests, and contribute to the code.
Codeshare is a great resource, but it’s purely one-way. I can update code I’ve submitted, but no one else can. And the only way to use the code is cut & paste, which isn’t necessarily optimal either.
Granted, there are lots more issues to consider here. But I’m just not sure there’s great value in GHI continuing to invest in Codeshare as the solution for sharing code. Would be better to have one place where all of GHI’s OSS code, plus any community-submitted code, could live.
