Description

Many developers like using github or personal repository

Many developers' github repositories are nontrivial to find.

Let's index them on our website or wiki somewhere?

(I thought of this as I watched students look for Teor's repository on gitweb.tpo)

Hrm, sounds like we want a wiki page where anyone can add their repositories, and we should link it from gitweb.tpo? Would that be something you'd think is smart?

Hi Nick. Isn't this what the volunteer page is for? I link to the source locations for our major projects, some of which indeed are on github.

No. This would be "Sebastian's Tor repository is at https://git.torproject.org/sebastian/tor, personX's Tor repository is at https://github.com/personX/tor". At least afaiui

Then I vote 'meh'. If someone wants to write and maintain such a wiki then have fun but doesn't sound like a useful exercise to me. Most of us use the tor git repos and if somebody choses another place they can provide the remote url in the ticket.

This is something we could consider in the next website or people page?

I believe that Damian's people page allows people have a place where they can link a website if they want to, and it's opt-in. Win-win.
