In just under a week’s time, on Sunday 27th July 2014, I’ll be moving MyPaint’s old Gitorious git repositories over to the new GitHub ones fully, and closing down the old location. For a while now we’ve been maintaining the codelines in parallel to give people some time to switch over and get used to the new site; it’s time to formally switch over now.

If you haven’t yet changed your remotes over on existing clones, now would be a very good time to do that!

The bug tracker is moving from Gna! to Github’s issues tracker too – albeit rather slowly. This is less a matter of just pushing code to a new place and telling people about the move; rather we have to triage bugs as we go, and the energy and will to do that has been somewhat lacking of late. Bug triage isn’t fun, but it needs to be done.

(Github’s tools are lovely, and we’re already benefiting from having more eyeballs focussed on the projects. libmypaint has started using Travis and Appveyor for CI, the MyPaint application’s docs will benefit tons from being more wiki-like to edit, and the issue tracker is just frankly better documented and nicer for pasting in screencaps and exception dumps)
