No.

Strong and vocal feedback of the community has been heard and Github
is intended as a temporary stop. We'll sort out a different hosting
provider, most probably self-hosting the repositories, some time in
the future.

When the time comes, you will be either asked to sign up for this new
service, or be given a pre-created account. It's expected that you
will need to supply the SSH public keys again, just like with Github.

I have not forgotten about this, I just did not get around to doing this.
 

### I mean, can I obtain the backup of the Subversion repos that you used?

For the time being, the backup is available over:
  http://vcs.gs.badc0de.net/rsync_svn.gna.org_svn_gnustep.tar.bz2

For cost saving reasons, I am terminating the virtual machine that this was being hosted on. I've deployed this file onto Google Cloud Storage instead. The DNS record has already been changed to point to the new location.

There has been a grand total of 20 downloads, many of them bots indexing the mailing list archives:

ivucica@gnustep-vcs:/var/log/nginx$ ag -z rsync_svn.gna.org_svn_gnustep.tar.bz2 | grep ' 200 ' | wc -l
20

I don't see evidence of people using Subversion to checkout the read-only copy of the code either, so that is not being migrated.

This VM has also been backing up SVN of gap hourly; it will not be doing so anymore once shut down. (I completely forgot that it's doing so. I also never set up monitoring for this, nor did I set up cloning of Github repos either.)

I am keeping the VM disk around for the time being, and will back it up if I opt to delete the disk from GCE.

Maybe slightly off-topic here, but the gap repo mirrored on github is
out of sync. See https://github.com/gnustep/gap : the last commit is
from 11 june.

I have never migrated GAP myself, nor do I maintain it.

But good reminder. I believe each GAP project should be separated into its own project, probably under separate GH org (“gnustep-gap”?), or when we move to a self-hosting.

I will spend the time on this, if Riccardo believes we should do this.

the mirror was done by Gregory when he also mirrored GNA. However, if
was not scheduled constantly but manually. From time to time Gregory did
a sync.
He did not perform any, I asked him to do a refresh a couple of times,
but I suppose he was busy.

Since it is a "read only" mirror, it may be confusing to split it in
many sub-projects!
Perhaps it it would be nice also to mirror pantomime/gnumail.. I was
able to salvage the whole project on GNA and recover it only with great
work and luck and probably lost a couple of (luckily cosmetic only)
patches.

Riccardo
