Outsource project hosting, good or bad? Recommendations please!

Hi,

I work as the sole developer for a small company but I don't need the hassle of managing a code repository. I'm thinking that a project hosting provider could do it better and let me concentrate on development work.

So does anybody have any recommendations for SVN+Trac project hosting out there on the net?

Many thanks!

Regards,

Jonathan

I use assembla. It's free for repositories upto 200Mb even for commercial use.
It provides svn and trac, although I prefer to use fogbugz ondemand.

Give CodeSpaces (http://www.codespaces.com/) a shot.  It is SVN + its own issue tracker/wiki/forum.

We just signed up for CodeSpaces, and are going to give it a try.  We also have used (depending on the project) our own in-house setup, and DreamHost (which provides web hosting, active collab hosting, and subversion hosting, under one roof).

You should also take a look at Unfuddle (http://www.unfuddle.com).  I've been using them for a few months and have been quite impressed with both the stability of the service and the functionality of their UI.  Besides SVN hosting, they have integrated ticketing and developer-focused project management tools, and recently added Notebooks which are similar to wikis, with integration into the ticketing system.

You can also try http://devguard.com , which I am using one year.

I use cvsdude (http://cvsdude.com). They have several different sized plans, and I have had no complaints or problems with anything for the last year or so that I've been with them.

I have been using cvsdude (http://cvsdude.com) for 1.5 years.  The package with Trac is US$30. I have been happy with it.

Well, I'll throw in my recommendation for hosted-projects.com.  SVN hosting and TRAC hosting, very affordable, with plans starting at $7/mo.  For that price, it's not worth the trouble to administer my own repository, and I have had no complaints with the service (been using them for about a year).

Yes, I think I'm going to try CodeSpaces soon.

I've used CVSDude (CVS or SVN) and RailsPlayground (SVN and Trac) with success.  The only couple issues that I had were with clueless developers, not the services.
