SourceForge goes into beta

Posted 17 Nov 1999 at 21:23 UTC by advogato Share This

SourceForge, a new service to host CVS, bug tracking, message boards, site hosting, and other services for open source projects, has gone into beta. It's funded by VA Linux systems, so it ought to be a pretty good deal.

Please check the site out, and let Advogato know how you like it. There's obviously some overlap with the kinds of services Advogato provides - maybe there are some possibilities for cooperation.

One immediate problem is that they're not hosting projects that contain crypto, due to US export regulations. This is understandable (they'd be putting a lot at risk), but disappointing nonetheless, as crypto and security are increasingly becoming an important part of our computer infrastructure. On the flip side, they're using SSH and SSL widely throughout the site. Yay!

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
