I wouldn't suggest google code as a  repository unless you don't care
about people living in USA embargoed countries. Google apply USA
export restrictions and developers can't access those repositories (a
Cuban OSGeo-es member suffers this stuff all the time).

Of course this is not a blame against Google, as they just apply these
stupid USA laws.

Maybe gitorious.org?
