Sometimes, I want to dig into the source code of chimera, to know
the implementation details of something.

For projects hosted on github, this is easy.
Also, in my experience, github fosters contributions from users.

That being said, I did not use chimera for 2/3 years.
I am glad to see that it is even more powerful and easy to use
than before.
The tutorials are also excellent (like: Preparing Molecules for DOCKing)
and the .bild format that chimera can read in is extremely programmer 
friendly (it is so easy to generate).

My love for chimera (over pymol) is renewed.
