Almost as a joke, and trying to be as lazy as possible, I made a repo for some simple arduboy games ( based on github (so, actually to submit, people just fork it and do pull requests to master, and nobody pays hosting or anything).

I'm not sure what you mean by migrating it, but if you mean moving it to github, no, I don't want to rehost it. I have a pretty good setup now. For close to 20 years, I've been running it with a PHP+MySQL back end, so updating programs is fairly easy.

Here is an example screenshot of the interface I setup for updating files. Some fields are auto-generated.

If I allowed people to directly add things, even with moderation it would be hopeless. When users submit something, it just sends me a specially-formatted email since I often have to redo a lot of it anyway. For example, I request that all contributions be in a Zip file but lots of people insist on sending me RARs so I have to recompress. I request GIF or PNG for the screenshot, but lots of people insist on sending me JPEGs which I can't use. And oftentimes the descriptions are poorly written or left out entirely, or there is no documentation included with the program as I request.
