Moving to github?

I am re-evaluating my development environment. One idea that pops up is if I should move the rsyslog project over to github. Initially, I was rather sceptic about using a third-party for the git repository (after all, a git server is not rocket science…), but github seems to have gotten momentum in the past years. But so far it is more or less my gut feeling that migrating over to it may make sense.

So I am looking for feedback from my users and fellow developers: what are the pros and cons on moving to github in your opinion? Please be subjective, that’s what I am looking for. So there is no need to be shy.

Please comment and let me know your thoughts!
