[vhdl-200x] Code sharing

At the last confcall, I took on the task of help us to pick a code-hosting solution.

Based on my previous email to the list: http://www.eda-twiki.org/vhdl-200x/hm/1411.html and the discussion following, I don't think much has changed in terms of either our requirements or the offering that the various hosts give.

I've used github and Lauchpad in anger: Launchpad is slower, and has a bunch of features we don't need (such as making packages for Ubuntu), so I'd go with git. However, if we want to support Windows *developers* better (TortoiseGit is a bit ropey at times, I use the command-line) then I'd lean back to Launchpad. It doesn't matter much in terms of deployment to *users* though, only for the comfort of developers.

We also need to pick a suitable license for the code we publish.

Comments welcome :)

Jim: In terms of making an actual decision, should we have a formal vote?
