http://common-lisp.net/gitweb?p=projects/cffi/cffi.git, but that is no longer the official git
repository for CFFI, it is on github now. The cl.net
> repo is severely out of date (master looks OK, but the fsbv branch is ancient and libffi doesn't even
show). The web page should point to github, and the cl.net repo should either be deleted or synced up with github.
Would it be possible for you to get push access to cl.net, rather than
having the rest of us start following a different repository?
I understand Zach's post recommending Github; but unfortunately Github
encourages a fractured community, leading to messages like yours (hey
everybody, look over here) and almost caracitured by Cyrus.
Installing gitolite on cl.net would make git hosting much easier for end
users to manage. Keeping everything in one place, where trusted admins
can add and remove users, should be more conducive to community
Imagine if SBCL changed repositories or even websites depending on whether
Christophe or Juho was rolling the release... Stability and
predictability are virtues.
