    I want to upload my app, and make it opensource, can anyone recommend one over the other?

    I have registered for both, but to be honest, I have no idea how to upload my code..... I have svnX installed, but cant find any documentation for newbies.
    :confused:

    can anyone point me in the direction of a description of how to upload your project to either.

    thanks in advance:eek:

    Googlecode is a lot simpler than Sourceforge. If you're a n00b then it's more suited. (it suits me a lot better anyway).

    For SVN read the book and do it via command line rather than svnX. You'll learn more. It's not hard tbh.

    I'm a big fan of github.com

    Of course, it uses git which takes a little getting used to coming from svn. But once you get used to it, it is an absolute joy compared to svn. And github the service is very nicely laid out and quick/easy to use.

    A lot of major open source projects are moving there. And you see a lot of interesting new stuff there every day.
