• GoldEd Project code repository?

    From Rj Clay@1:120/546 to All on Sat Jan 6 13:06:50 2018
    Sourceforge changed all CVS repositories to being 'read only' back in November of 2017. Has anyone done any work converting the project over to something else? At least SVN, if not GIT... Had been doing an CVS->GIT (GIT is what I prefer these days...) import but need to set something up again. Would much prefer just using an 'official' repository. (I'm a member of the project but not an admin...)

    At this point it's probably best to move it to GitHub.

    From what I understand, binaries for GoldED+ could be made available for download from a GitHub Pages site.

    Yes, there are a number of ways one can do that. (I have or am associated with a number of projects at GitHub...) But they do not, to my knowledge, have
    a file mirroring network like Sourceforge does.

    SF yesterday announced an autommatic GitHub import tool, so you can keep code on GitHub and binaries on SF. Woudln't this work for Golded repo?

    Once SourceForge started bundling malware with their binaries a couple of years
    ago I felt it was Game Over for them.

    GitHub feels well-run in comparison, and also well-funded. It's also a lot simpler to use, once you get over the initial hump of switching from CVS or Subversion to Git for version control.

    I notice Apple, Microsoft and IBM are using it. That's a decent endorsement.

    And while not an ideal outcome, Google shut down their Google Code service because of how successful GitHub was.

    my knowledge, have a file mirroring network like Sourceforge does.

    GitHub would use a content distribution network internally.

    AFAIK SourceForge never had any mirrors in or near Australia so that point is a
    bit academic from where I sit.

    This seems less reliable than simply using GitHub Pages.

    Also it probably isn't designed to be used more than once. Importing a GitHub repo over the top of an existing SourceForge repo would presumably break.

    Also I suspect SourceForge's GitHub import tool is designed to be manually operated, versus "git push" which can run from a makefile or cron job.

    You were the first to whom I sent an invitation to join the huskyproject on GitHub. But the invitation is still pending. Haven't you received it?

    I was wondering if there were plans to use, for instance, travis...

    I'd thought they already had something but taking a look that the 'GitHub Importer' it looks like it includes more than just importing the git repo now.

    Might at least be worth a look...

    I hadn't seen it before but when logged in at GH just now it was showing up.
    I've accepted it, of course.
