The problem with putting the GeSHi source on GitHub is the fact that the
source is still managed via SVN and not Git. While this is no problem in
itself, because you always could convert the repository, it IS a problem
to convert the repository from SVN to Git without loosing half of the
history. If you have a look; especially on the early history of the
repository, you'll notice a slightly changed layout. Given this slightly
changed layout there's no easy way you can convert the repository from
SVN to Git automatically. In addition there's the problem of the two
developement strands that are developed independently from each other.
If converting these to Git you'd have to make them two separate
developement trees without common anchesters. While this definitively IS
possible with Git it's a PITA to actually do this.
So unless someone goes ahead and does the conversion there will likely
be no switch to Git as the PITA isn't worth the gains. At least not for
day-to-day developement. For people who do regular contributions there's
always the chance to get direct repository access.
