GitLab is here!
Starting today, May 1, we’re switching from our cgit/gitolite setup to GitLab. Our old server, git.xfce.org, is now a ready-only in-sync mirror (so you can still pull code). Our new server is gitlab.xfce.org.
(The detailed version of this blog post can be read in my announcement on the Xfce Mailing List.)
For users nothing changes.
For distributors nothing changes (presuming you’re using the release tarballs and not Git tags).
For developers and contributors quite a few things change.
- Most importantly: The Git URL changed, so you need to update the remotes of your local repositories. Feel free to use our helper script.
- Fork repositories and use branches and merge requests!
- If you don’t have an account yet (we created quite a few for you regulars already) please sign up! We have opened registrations for GitLab accounts as well as allowing you to register with your GitHub account (if you have one).
Please poke us on IRC or the mailinglist if you’re lacking repository access or ownership. (By default new users cannot fork before being manually approved. Yes. We are afraid of the spambots.)
Have a nice GitLab!
