Freecode.com + Dist::Zilla (and friends)

freecode.com now has an api! (http://help.freecode.com/kb/api-7/data-api-introduction) granted its a bit of a relic and who knows what the traffic level is.

with a dist::zilla plugin, we could be flooding freecode with releases with no extra work from authors

(freecode.com was freshmeat.net, then the PC fun police made them rename it)

    wow, I missed that -- you miss a lot of things when you live in a cave :)

      I had missed it too :(

      A quick dig around threw up the original name-change thread which explains it was Geeknet's decision. Freecode/Freshmeat (as well as the other old Geeknet properties) is now owned by Dice Holdings, so you can decide whether or not you would like to fill their coffers by contributing to it and/or using it.

        Are there better alternatives for posting project code?
