Of course, you can make a project that simply points to your external hosting. That way people searching this site will find your work. But even better, you can tell your project on this site to track your existing repository — keeping a read-only copy of it automatically, for twice the visibility.

Some examples of projects like this include "AIM-C":/projects/aimc, "aubio":/projects/aubio, and "MAP":/projects/map.

To set this up for your project, just go to your project's Settings page, select the Repository tab, and follow the instructions you find there.
