[kinda urgent] Feedback about GitHub! Need your input!

09 Mar 2014, 20:28

I must write a short essay (actually, create a presentation) due tomorrow (yeah, I know!) about GitHub.
The final objective (by the end of this semester) will be not only to study a certain colaborative system,
but also identify a problem and suggest an effective way to improve/solve it.

The teacher told us to do a FODA and compare our system to others in the same domain.
Here's an adapted table of comparisons, taken from a previous essay about GitHub (dated July/2012):
As of June/2012, the students who came up with such table pointed that the main problem in GitHub was git itself,
as many people who are new to GitHub/versioning have this barrier where they gotta learn how to use git properly.

However, IMHO, I find it pretty easy to use their "GitHub for Windows" application without the necessity of learning a lot about git.
For that reason, I don't consider this the main problem anymore.
Unfortunately, I don't use GitHub that much, so I'm struggling to find what could be a good problem to be evaluated throughout the semester.

That's pretty much it. Any help is appreciated, specially regarding the analysis and the comparisons. :)

The Social Network thing is a problem itself.
Communicating with Github is limited.
I think the only way to communicate is opening an issue, and discuss things visible to everyone.

If I understand correctly, the "social network" column refers to the fact that you can follow/subscribe to a user. It makes sense, but I may be wrong.

despite all propaganda many development teams are too small or solo to benefit from an svn in a meaningful way. Another issue that no one seems to want to acknowledge is that despite wide spread use and acceptability many firms refuse to allow code to be stored in external systems. Forcing them to use proprietary solutions

AKA "GitHub's free account doesn't allow any private repositories"...

@Zelio: I've added pratically all those tables to my presentation.

Ends up we didn't have enough time for all presentations tonight.
I was expecting to ask my classmates what they think GitHub's problem is. As I couldn't do so, I still accept your input.
If there is any interest, I may translate and share my findings/presentation here later. :)

There is no need to use GH as there are several free clones you can install locally:
https://www.gitlab.com/
http://gitprep.org/
I'm sure there are others.
