Hi all, I've just moved the main repository of IMDbPY from Mercurial to Bitbucket, please take notice (below, the reasons for this action).
I've moved the old Mercurial repository of IMDbPY to https://bitbucket.org/alberanid/imdbpy-mercurial-repository Then I've created a new Git repo, https://bitbucket.org/alberanid/imdbpy/ >From now on, the source code of IMDbPY can be taken from github ( https://github.com/alberanid/imdbpy ) or this new Git repo on Bitbucket: they will be kept in sync. I hope this doesn't cause too much trouble. :-) Best regards, On Sun, Apr 9, 2017 at 10:14 AM, Davide Alberani <davide.alber...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hi all, > While I'm still not able to devote to IMDbPY the resources it needs, > I'm glad to see that some pull requests are being open and there's > still interest in the project. :-) > > Historically, IMDbPY has been hosted as a Mercurial repository > on Bitbucket. > Some years ago, when the future of Bitbucket was unclear, > to allow more contributors a Git mirror on Github was created. > > Since today most of the pull requests and open issues > comes from there, I have some problems keeping > everything in sync. > The sync requires the mercurial-git plugin, which works fine, > but also has to keep its own meta-data to match the different > schema of commit IDs, and I fear it will break, sooner or later > (plus, it makes my *local* clone of the Mercurial repository a > single point of failure for this sync: no one else would be able > to do it). > > So, if there're no valid reason to do otherwise, my plan is: > - rename the mercurial repository on Bitbucket > - create a new *Git* Bitbucket project > - keep them in sync as different origins. > > Sure, we could also close the Bitbucket account, but with > Git is easy enough to keep everything aligned. > Another option would be a switch to Gitlab, but we would > have to pay for our own hosting, and right now I don't see > any reason to do so. > > Any opinions on this? > I plan to do the switch within a few days. > > > (also, I have deleted an outdated repository on Sourceforge) > > -- > Davide Alberani <davide.alber...@gmail.com> [PGP KeyID: 0x3845A3D4AC9B61AD] > http://www.mimante.net/ -- Davide Alberani <davide.alber...@gmail.com> [PGP KeyID: 0x3845A3D4AC9B61AD] http://www.mimante.net/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Check out the vibrant tech community on one of the world's most engaging tech sites, Slashdot.org! http://sdm.link/slashdot _______________________________________________ Imdbpy-help mailing list Imdbpyfirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/imdbpy-help
