[09:22:11] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[09:47:04] <Yuv422> I've just read about sourceforge bundling adware/installers for some project downloads :(
[09:47:09] <Yuv422> seriously not cool
[09:49:20] <Yuv422> I wonder if they are in financial trouble if they're resorting to these revenue raising tactics. :(
[09:58:50] <Dominus> can you link to that?
[09:59:00] <Dominus> That might be the final straw...
[09:59:19] <Yuv422> http://www.gluster.org/2013/08/how-far-the-once-mighty-sourceforge-has-fallen/
[09:59:44] <Yuv422> http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/11/07/2328228/gimp-citing-ad-policies-moves-to-ftp-rather-than-sourceforge-downloads
[10:02:49] <Dominus> :(
[10:02:55] <Dominus> that's not cool...
[10:03:06] <Yuv422> yeah :(
[10:03:11] <Dominus> I can imagine wjp mentioning git sooner or later again :)
[10:04:26] <Yuv422> yeah I'll really have to play around with git some more
[10:07:05] <wjp> well :-)
[10:07:25] <Dominus> :)
[10:09:41] <wjp> (but I can't recommend git enough, really)
[10:17:08] <Yuv422> It is a big hassle to move a project though
[10:17:32] <Yuv422> new web / source repo locations etc
[11:02:40] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC (Quit: Yuv422)
[13:18:15] --> TheCycoONE has joined #nuvie
[14:55:05] <-- TheCycoONE has left IRC (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
[15:02:15] --> TheCycoONE has joined #nuvie
[20:15:38] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[21:07:48] <Lightkey> there is always wjp for that, he does it before breakfast
[21:08:12] <Lightkey> (but I can't recommend wjp enough, really)
[21:33:25] <Yuv422> every good project needs a wjp. :-)
[21:59:10] <-- TheCycoONE has left IRC (Quit: And then there were n-1)
[23:44:47] <wjp> I'd be happy to do svn->git conversion if desired
[23:50:15] --> Malignant_Manor has joined #nuvie
[23:50:51] <Malignant_Manor> Yuv422: , wjp: I don't mind using git
[23:51:19] <Yuv422> cool. I think I'd like to play around with it a bit more before making the switch
[23:51:27] <Yuv422> but I'd like to move to git
[23:52:53] <Malignant_Manor> I've never committed (push or whatever it is called) to git . I just don't like the hash version numbering.
[23:54:32] <Malignant_Manor> I know git svn remembered what old revision numbers were. I don't know if converted repositories do.
[23:55:23] <wjp> if you want
[23:55:34] <Malignant_Manor> wjp: Is there a nice way to keep Sourceforge in sync with Github?
[23:55:58] <wjp> hm, I haven't check recently, but is there a reason you'd want to do that?
[23:56:03] <wjp> s/check/checked/
[23:56:12] <Malignant_Manor> We have referred to some commit numbers in the commit comments and changelog.
[23:56:27] <wjp> yes, but that's for old commits
[23:56:30] <Malignant_Manor> Like regressions.
[23:56:50] <wjp> it's definitely possible to keep have svn revision numbers in the commit messages
[23:56:52] <wjp> s/have//
[23:59:22] <Malignant_Manor> I think that should be done.
