    Google Code Shutting Down

    I got an email a few minutes ago saying Google Code will shut down in the next few months. I will need to migrate all my projects over to GitHub, and I urge everyone else to do the same.

    The only real problem is that it will break all in-app updating.

    Apparently everybody was moving to source-forge, and on Google code admins were spending almost all there time getting troll/malware/junk off the servers.

    Yes, it will. XFlak will have gotten the same email as me, but I'll talk to him through his personal one since he rarely uses the public one anymore.

    I wasn't aware of that. I was pretty annoyed when they removed the download feature, but I host everything at HacksDen anyway.

    So, is somebody going to create a mad rush to download all the useful Nintedno items from google code, and copy information that will forever be lost once it gets shutdown?

    I was downloading some stuff from google code and noticed in the toolbar at the top of the screen that there is now an "export to github" button.

    Once Google Code is completely retired, you will still be able to download everything in an archive (probably tarball).

    Yeah, this is a good and a bad thing at the same time.
    it shows that Scroogle... Google* can adopt to changes as about everybody are moving to GitHub. However its sad that we might lose a few Google Code projects :/

    As you know, I dislike GIT. That's why I'm using SourceForge.

    PS: We all know you just don't like Google because they continue to beat Microsoft

    We switched to SVN on Wiicraft because GIT was confusing me, lol.

    There is no such thing as a Windows based PC (just a PC), but I don't want a Chromebook or a Zune. Give me a Toshiba and a Sansa.
