Reminder: it's 2 days until Bitbucket closes Mercurial support

Bitbucket is still planning to remove all Mercurial repos on July 1st.

If you plan to move somewhere, there aren’t many options - OSDN and GNU Savannah, everything else uses Git now. Here’s a converter script.

Specifically we could lose these:

@vaporware - Guncho, ZILF
@zondo - IFM

Just FYI, IFM has jumped the Bitbucket ship and moved to Sourcehut.

I remember that sourceforge used to be the leading repo back in the day. I still have a project collecting dust on there from almost a decade ago. Is that repo still any good?

Sourceforge is pretty ad-encrusted these days. (For the past ten years, really.) I don’t like to go anywhere near it.

Ah. That’s too bad. I liked it when I was using it, but the last time was in 2011, I think.

Thanks for the reminder! I starred the deprecation notice in my inbox in, um, August, but then I forgot about it… oops.

If anyone cares, I’ve now moved the repo for my game Last Day of Summer over to github: https://github.com/dougo/ifcomp11

Jesse McGrew announced on Facebook recently that ZILF has moved to foss.heptapod.net/zilf though the zilf.io web site still points to Bitbucket.
