Good point

>> * How many people contribute to one, and what hosting service do they
>> use and what is the experience, is performance consistent and better
>> than Sourceforge SVN, all around the world?
> In Singapore and Malaysia, gitorious.org and github.com have been
> extremely stable and fast, unlike sourceforge.net.
>> * And does anyone have experience using any other DVCS and hosting

> P.S. What's GFC?

Oops sorry, non-computer acronym, global financial crisis
