Differences between Project and Chamber
At OSDN, there are two places to develop and release software. One is Project and the other is Chamber (PersonalForge).
Within a Project, because you can set the rights for each administrator and developer individually as of entire project or each function, and release page and web hosting are provided for the general users, it is possible to do one-stop open source development and community management. But for a simple small tool, or if you are working on your own, there may be too many functions. Chamber (PersonalForge) is a great solution for an individual who wants to release tools and contents without going through complicated process.
