Excerpts from William Morgan's message of Thu Jul 31 12:10:49 +1000 2008:
> Hi all,
> Some news:
> - I've moved Sup over to Gitorious. I don't know that this will
> magically spur a continuous stream of bugfixes, but at least now we
> have a repo webpage that's not broken.
> If you're running from Git, you should update your repo to pull from
> If you don't have local changes, you can simply reclone it:
> git clone git://gitorious.org/sup/mainline.git
> If you want to preserve your local repository, you can do something like:
> git remote add gitorious git://gitorious.org/sup/mainline.git
> git fetch
> Then for each branch that you want "git pull" to pull from gitorious,
> you'll need to do:
> git config branch.<branch>.remote gitorious
> git config branch.<branch>.merge refs/heads/<branch>
> and then check it out and try pulling. If you haven't made any
> commits, this should be a fast-forward.
> If you want to call the remote "origin" instead of "gitorious", you'll
> just have to remove or rename your origin remote first. The commands
> above will be the same.
> Note that I've reset the "next" branch, so if you have commits on that
> branch, life may be little more complicated. Doing the above and merging
> should work. Or you can isolate your changes somehow and rebase
> --onto, if you feel like being complicated.
> - I've merged all outstanding topic branches down to master, and
> cherry-picked a couple commits that somehow ended up in next by
> themselves. So master should be the latest and greatest for the
> - I've moved the bugs dir directly into master. The bugs branch is now
> deprecated. (It doesn't even exist in the Gitorious repo.)
> - I'm planning on release an 0.6 soon with all the bugfixes we have so
> far. To this end, I've unassigned all unclosed issues from the 0.6
> - Can anyone confirm that that the master branch on gitorious works for
> you, just like the next branch did in the old repo? It should, but I
> want to double-check before I ship 0.6.
Works for me as well.
> That's it! Work continues on STS and I hope to have some kind of
> functional code to publish soon.

You're worried criminals will continue to penetrate into cyberspace, and
I'm worried complexity, poor design and mismanagement will be there to meet
