Google launches open-source repository
In its latest effort to further the open-source programming movement, Google opened a site Thursday where programmers can host their software projects.
As expected, Google engineering manager Greg Stein announced the project hosting site during a talk at the O'Reilly Open Source Convention in Portland, Ore.
"One of our goals is to encourage healthy, productive open-source communities. Developers can always benefit from more choices in project hosting," Google said on a frequently-asked-questions site.
