Rep: Reputation: 886Reputation: 886Reputation: 886Reputation: 886Reputation: 886Reputation: 886Reputation: 886 - git and cgit services migrated to new server

After fielding a few reports of git:// being inaccessible, it occurred to me that we should probably do a better job of announcing a change that occurred in the past couple of days.

We have migrated git and cgit to a dedicated virtual machine on our new server.

Code: is now
git:// is now git://
If you have an existing clone of the repo, simply edit the .git/config file inside to reflect the new URL.

If you have push rights in the repo via gitolite, the same applies, but make sure you leave the format of the URL intact (only change the domain, not the username@ part).

We are working on migrating the remaining services to the new machine (also in VMs), but in the meantime, we are aware of the following bugs due to moving git and cgit off of the current server:

1. and no longer show content -- this is not fixable currently, but it is already working on the (to be migrated to) webserver, so no worries - it will be back.

2. Some third-party SBo tools may not have been updated yet to use the new git URLs. Please file bugs with them, but be patient - this is a new change and those projects are also staffed by volunteers.
