Today Dashacks released their own social coding website similar to Github and Gitorious. Their website, called Git-Hacks.com
allows developers to host their code free. Since the website is canadian the DMCA rules don't apply to them. Some well known developers like Drizzt and Kakarotoks have already put up their code. Hopefully Git-hacks doesn't get intimidated by sony and take down ps3 repositories.
Git-Hacks About Page
"git-hacks.com is a safe haven for all hacking projects. It is also a great way of collaborating on distributed open source projects"
"Gitorious provides open source infrastructure for hosting open source projects that use Git. The central entity in Gitorious is the project, which contains one or more top-level repositories and any repositories managed by the project's contributors.
This allows you, as a project administrator, to keep an eye on what people are working on in their individual clones of your repositories. It also lets you merge or provide feedback on their contributions.
Likewise, as a project contributor, you get a place to host your contributions and provide feedback back into the projects ecosystem and easily collaborate with others on the same project. You get your own personal clone of the project on the site that you can work freely in and a way to package up your changes and notify the other project members about your changes. "

Gitorious was started by Johan Sørensen in the end of 2007 as a way to easily host Git repositories for himself. The idea turned out to be so useful that Gitorious began to offer hosting for other projects as well, for free, eventually opening up for anyone to create an account. "
"In March 2009 Gitorious.org was folded into Shortcut AS, a software company co-founded by Johan. The intention was to improve Gitorious beyond what was feasible for a single developer to manage. Shortcut AS now officially supports and develops Gitorious in cooperation with contributors outside the company, while still being 100% open source under the GNU Affero General Public License. "
