Microsoft has decided to stop providing free hosting services for open source projects via CodePlex. They recommend moving instead to GitHub or other hosting providers. By Abel Avram
I had a handful of projects on CodePlex because the government customers didn’t trust GitHub. They said, “We trust Microsft, they will be around for decades, who do we trust for GitHub….”. You could see the writing on the wall when Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code editor has built-in support for GIT, not CodePlex.
I still have some code projects in Subversion, Team Foundation Services, etc. Now I have one less to maintain.
