Sorry to be indecisive but...

Gitorious seems to mess up more frequently than I'd like, would switching to Github be a possibility? (I mean from an annoying users by changing point of view, technically it wouldn't be an issue.)

Gitorious is down at the moment (at least ssh access is), and from what I saw on IRC it looks like the guy who is responsible for that is away at the moment, so who knows when it will be sorted. On the other hand GitHub is ran by a company and has people employed to make sure its up 24/7.

Re: Sorry to be indecisive but...

This is why I bought myself a GitHub account: it's well worth the price for what they offer. smile

Re: Sorry to be indecisive but...

Okay I have set up a repository on github and updated the site links to use it: http://github.com/fluxbb/fluxbb

If anyone (i.e. the dev team) needs write access then register on github and let me know and I'll add you.

I'll try to think of a way to handle the old gitorious project later on. Developers, you will need to update the origin of your local repositories to git@github.com:fluxbb/fluxbb.git.

I'll also write an announcement tomorrow and post it letting people know of the change.

PS. I wonder if there is an easy way we could keep the gitorious page as a read-only mirror though somehow keep it up-to-date?

Re: Sorry to be indecisive but...

GitHub has this concept of "service hooks". Potentially you could set up a PHP script that pulls from GitHub and pushes to Gitorious and set that up as a service hook.

That might be smart. We already maintain a local copy of the repo on the server, which the release script uses when packaging up releases.

We could set up a service hook that calls a PHP script here, which would update the local copy from GitHub, then push it to Gitorious. It could maybe also update our timeline to include commits then.

Re: Sorry to be indecisive but...

Yup, I'll take care of the timeline. That was my next thing on the list...
