Hi Guys,

This is a question I've been struggling with for a while now.

Would you host your company's super important bread and butter code on GitHub instead of your own server?

I get a funny feeling every time I think about this mostly because I've put tons of time (3 years) into our code base and I think of it as one of the most important aspects of our company.

Then again, GitHub hosts their code on GitHub which makes me feel a bit at ease in doing so.

I would really appreciate your insights.


I would, and I do. I don't use their wiki or issue tracker, though, so if they managed to lose the data, it'd take all of 30 seconds to (well, plus pushing some rather large files) to set it up again.

Our codebase is GPLed, so there are no concerns about privacy.
