I personally feel that (github, stackoverflow) is more convenient, easier and popular than (launchpad, cgit, askbot). Wondering why openstack projects won't use github and stackoverflow,

some situations I met:

  • I see 500 status on askbot many times.
  • I can not use markdown syntax on launchpad issue/comment
  • it's not easy to do a pull request than that in github
edit retag flag offensive reopen merge delete

IMHO, launchpad is more powerful in bug and blueprint managements,as well as release versioning than github. Don't know if all base infra (gerrit/zuul) will work well with github. For ask, ultimately have been too many 500 status, don't know why. But having an specific platform is easer to track.

In the way of tags, searches for specific items. In stackoverflow if search for error NoneType will bring you millions of unrelated questions.

My recollection is that when Openstack was on trial in Stackoverflow's Area 51 there was not enough interest captured and it was rejected, that led fairly directly to the use of Askbot instead.
