Website issues and future plans

by Ville Laurikari on July 20, 2010

As you may already know, the Darcs repository and the mailing list as well as the archive are down. Previously, I was actually running this site on a box sitting under my desk at home. I moved to a new house recently. Unfortunately, the fiber link isn’t yet hooked up, so now I’m using a hosting service for this site. As you can probably image, with a new house and everything, I haven’t been able to take the time to set up all services my old box had.

The plan is to migrate the TRE project to a proper platform such as Google Code, Bitbucket, or CodePlex, instead of spending a lot of my time in system administration. This will entail also moving from Darcs to Mercurial or Git. But I’m really looking forward to starting using an actual bug tracker for TRE.

I’ll keep this site updated as things start taking shape with the new site.

If you want to continue using darcs, you could try Patch-Tag, but they don’t have a bug tracker yet.

Matthias, thanks for the link. On the scale of features needed for TRE project hosting, a bug tracker trumps Darcs support. I still think Darcs has the simplest and most natural command line interface. Alas, Darcs is not as popular as Mercurial or Git.

Trac offers both: darcs support and a bug tracker, but requires that you maintain your own infrastructure.

If you decide to switch to Mercurial or git (I like Mercurial), I suggest to switch to a github or bitbucket, because they allow users to easily fork and host their own repositories. github really accelerated Ruby development.

If you are looking for a free hosting platform, Savannah is a good choice (there was also a request for darcs support). Debian’s Alioth also supports darcs, but I don’t if they do for external projects.

Trac is nice, but I’m really looking to cut down the time I need to spend on system administration. A fully hosted free service seems like a winner. At the moment, I’m leaning towards Bitbucket.

Hi Ville.
Looking forward to this, sounds like a good move. Great with a bug tracker and for you to cut down on unnecessary administration.

This might be of help for deciding, in case you had not seen it.

I remember that some bug fixes were suggested on the mailing list. Would it be possible for you to upload the list archive so we could merge those with the current version until you have the repository and mailing list servers back up and running?

As I still got a darcs backup of yours from a few weeks before your move, I migrated it to git/github and applied my own patches/fixes to it here:

Are there any plans of inclusion replacement/substitution abilities in TRE (and in this version of agrep)?

That would be pretty!

Thank you!

Did this ever get uploaded to one of the more public repositories?

This library seems terribly useful. I’m expecting to just use Ger Hobbelt’s github host of it absent anything else, but I’d hate to see the library continue to rot on the vine. Anything I can do to help?

TRE is on github now (has been, actually, for a while already).

The repo has been migrated from the old Darcs repo. Pull requests are welcome, I’d be happy to include patches.
