    Sourceforge -- Problems --been unavailable for a few days


    Hi there

    Is sourceforge changing possibly into a "Pay" site or something --it's been unavailable for a few days.

    Used to be fine for all sorts of Open source software. It's sometimes difficult to find alternate mirrors for some decent open source stuff.

    Cheers

    Be careful with SourceForge, they've been co-opting projects they consider to be "abandoned" and adding their own adware to the installers... Gimp was one of these IIRC correctly, because GIMP moved to a different site, and there is no way to delete a project from SourceForge (that was its original purpose was to provide a site that will never go away for open source reasons).

    SourceForge Infrastructure and Service Restoration

    Downtime can often present a rare view to the infrastructure of a site. Service restoration for the Slashdot Media sites (sourceforge.net and slashdot.org) commenced Thursday after a storage fault. We’re providing a greater depth of information about our restoration activities to help keep you informed. We’re also providing some detail about our infrastructure to accurately convey the state of our infrastructure in light of some third-party misinformation.
