[Geany-devel] Git switch

I cannot answer any of the questions because I also have no experience 
in running a git project.

But what I know is that we are actually less depending on a hoster. 
Because of git's DVCS nature, everyone has the complete repo locally and 
can work offline with it. Git hosting is something for convinience (i.e. 
web interface for source browsing). We wouldn't actually *need* a hoster 
at all, but of course it would be nice (with hosting, cloning other 
people's repos is simplified extremely).

This is one of the strong points of git. Even if the hoster is not very 
dependable, since the actual repo is on everyone's system, the hoster 
could be dead for a few days or we could switch the hoster easily 
without losing anything.

Best regards.
