I'll chime in here too:
I think you are right about the difficulty of patching etc.
I am personally not a fan of github, mainly because every time I visit
their website my browser hangs for about 10 seconds (while it compiles
However, getting source thereafter is trivial. Forking is also trivial.
I might also suggest another factor which might affect your decision--
or not. For me, git seems to be all about decentralization. And most
of the younger programmers I talk to ascribe to the "steal and fork,"
rather than "use and contribute." This may be my oncoming
crotchity-ness coming out though.
If you wish for less forking but easier contribution/patching, SVN
might still be the way to go???
I don't know, probably not a factor anyhow. And I probably have a
skewed view representing the people I happen to know.
Still using your library on the iphone. Awesome job!
