Replicant source code fetch errors

Added by Paul Kocialkowski over 4 years ago

Apparently, Gitorious decided to disable the git protocol on their servers, so the Replicant source code won't fetch, with errors such as:

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

I switched the Gitorious repos to https, but it still doesn't work for some reason.
Since we're going to have to move some place else soon and I don't see any easy solution, I suppose the situation will remain what it is until we move the source code. Suggestions to solve this are welcome though.

This is the first thing I've found about Gitorious -> GitLab migration:

But it don't have to be GitLab. There are some alternatives, like this one:
Gogs: http://gogs.io/
with a pretty good review here: http://www.apertoire.net/gogs-an-alternative-to-gitlab/

We'll try to figure something out for the best, thanks for the suggestions.

Gitlab offers an automated import service from Gitorious. This seems to be a very easy solution.

It doesn't really make sense for us to use Gitlab. I think that's the least interesting option that we have.

Probably this helps a little bit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_source_code_hosting_facilities

Is there a way to get the sources in the meanwhile over a different (side-)channel, if I want/need them <now>?

Thanks for that, I hadn't thought of looking at Wikipedia!

I'm not available for that right now, but maybe we can see about it in a week and a half, if that's still needed.
If anyone else has another (clean) solution, please speak up!

If somebody didn't realized. The sources are up again here: https://git.replicant.us/gitweb/
and the source code downloading/updating instructions are also updated: http://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/ReplicantSourceCode

This is probably new to someone which doesn't read the blog, (especially this post: http://blog.replicant.us/2015/07/replicant-source-code-hosting-and-rmll-2015/) and just watches this thread.
