Git host switch

Post by Reid » 03 Apr 2015, 21:20

After 4 good years with Gitorious we are needed to leave it over a new git host...
"System notice: Gitorious is being acquired by GitLab and gitorious.org will shut down end of May."
Our choice turned to Gitlab over other hosts, our main reason to decide that host was the equal amount of feature than gitorious.
We don't need a place with a wiki/forum/bugtracker/githost such as github, we already have all of these support installed on our server.
Hosting our own git server is also a bad idea, even if we are against the idea of a git-social-media, we still want to show that we exist, and this, aside other important projects.
Bitbucket is not open-source, so we decided to just keep it as mirror.
So Gitlab seems to be the more suited host for our needs. This project is recent, some stuff are a bit buggy, but with their recent eating of gitorious's community projects, I'm sure that it will grow fast and be a good place for us to belong.

I think we should change link on Evol site to https://gitlab.com/groups/evol.
I made changes.

Previous icon looks better, IMO :) It looks more like association with git. New one is just a strange face :)

Gitorious logo looks better than gitlab, but it's weird to put gitorious logo for gitlab alt25 .

It seems that our openhub page went crazy with the git change, I updated every repository links.
We need to wait some days before that this link works back perfectly.
