Description

Launchpad finally supports git hosting:

https://help.launchpad.net/Code/Git

since we lost gitorious, it might make sense to have another mirror. However, mirroring isnt fully supported yet, so it might make sense to wait a bit for it to mature.

TDF and top level projects are already registered on launchpad:
https://launchpad.net/~documentfoundation
https://launchpad.net/df-libreoffice
https://launchpad.net/documentliberation

The destination urls for replication to launchpad for repo replicated to it are

git.launchpad.net/~documentfoundation/df-libreoffice/+git/{repo_name}

History

#1 Updated by Mathias M over 2 years ago

Gitorious was merged with gitlab.com. Is there a reason not to move the repo there ?

yes, a good reason. it does not works.
there was an advertized 'migration' path.. but half the repo failed to migrate... and of course core.git was one of these. no error message, not indication as to why, just 'Failed'
and no support at all... gitlab forum is dead, the only answer to be seen in the 2 month prior to when I tried was
to someone asking for a pro-account, that got an answer in few minutes...
but anything else is ignored.

This might also be a good mirroring opportunity (soon? its still beta. but at google, betas are often quite useable): https://cloud.google.com/tools/cloud-repositories/

Nope:
"This Beta release of Cloud Source Repositories provides free hosting of up to 500 MB of storage."
no even close of being big enough...
Beside 'private' git repo is really not what we are aiming for :-)

Assigning to Norbert, as https://code.launchpad.net/df-libreoffice/+git looks like this is already resolved. Leaving the honor to close this issue to the guy who did the work ;)
