ditch sourceforge

Post by thekev » 02 Sep 2015, 06:57

If you pay attention to the community, you probably know sourceforge have jumped the shark. They are manipulating projects and injecting malware into executable downloads. They haven't mangled the sysresccd iso yet, but I have no doubt they will find a way.

Nevermind the politics, their own mirrors are crap. There's not a single north american mirror from which I can download our iso in under 30 minutes. I can get it (in N.A) from Taiwan in two minutes. That's sad.

Run away, and fast! I can help with basics like primary mirror sites, but not project hosting. We should really consider moving to github or similar. We're already using git, so why SF? These fools have signed their own death warrant. Please honor it. :)
