Advantages of wedge/forum: better URL, and if you fork the project, your repo's description has 'forked from Wedge/forum' in it. It's descriptive.
Drawbacks: if someone forks your fork, nowhere can you see that it's a fork of Wedge.

Advantages of wedge/wedge: see above. Drawbacks: it's repetitive, repetitive. But it's the convention around software built from an organization repo (phpbb/phpbb, mybb/mybb...)

Advantages of wedge over Wedge: none, it's just a matter of taste.

Choosing one of these isn't a big deal, but once it's chosen, I can't change it anymore. (Except for the casing in the organization name. But that's all.)

My vote goes to github.com/Wedge/wedge. I like the professionalism in the name of the repo and the base address. The name wedge/forum should have been good if there are other software like /forum /blog/ ...

I prefer the lowercase one. wedge/wedge just rolls off the keyboard. No stretching for that pesky shift key.

You don't know what direction the software will take in the future, and if it becomes a CMS you may regret labelling it 'forum'. In fact with its media capability it's already more than a forum.

I just tested on github, and you can type the URL any way you want, it's case insensitive.

The poll is in favor of wedge/wedge, so I was going to go for that, but then I stumbled upon a small issue...

Yes, Github doesn't care about capitalization in your account and repo names. You can choose whatever you want.
However, git, itself, cares about it.

So, when I push my Wedge/languages repo to wedge/languages, I get an error saying Wedge/languages.git doesn't exist.
Oh, yeah.

Then again, it's not like the Wedge account has many 'followers' for now. So I could easily get away with forcing everyone to update their remotes. Hmm...

Whatever it takes to meet your preferences. :)
By the way... which repo is the actual one?
# dpkg-reconfigure brain
error: brain is not installed or configured

I don't know what you mean.
If you're talking about BitBucket's Wedge repo, it's still private. It'll be a mirror for the github repo. I don't think I'll use it for starters, but if I'm bored with Github, I'll fall back to that one.

There are two wedge repos...
Nao/Wedge & wedge/wedge...
Last repo is updated 2 hours ago.
Nao/Wedge with date from 10.1.2014.


Nao/Wedge was always my watched repo....

NaoGilles/Wedge is a dead repo; because I rebased the original repo multiple times, I couldn't have pushed it to NaoGilles without breaking repos for everyone else. So, I pushed it to Wedge/Wedge so you can safely get my latest updates, as long as you're not pulling into the same repo, of course. (Or cleaning up, and force pulling, or something. I don't know what's available here.)

wedge/wedge is winning; does that mean none of you cloned/forked the other repos in the Wedge account..? Because that *will* break any communication with them unless you take action... :^^;:

@Nao
From the look of this (based) on your recent posts in this thread, Wedge/wedge should be smoother than wedge/wedge as Wedge has been exiting and is case sensitive. In this matter, I suggest you impose your 'veto power' as the 'president' here. Clearly, wedge/wedge might be good and is leading the pool but there should be consideration...
