#752 TODO (after next release based on Paper build system): Abandon Notabug. Move to GitLab hosted on git.libreboot.org

Open
opened 2 weeks ago by vimuser · 5 comments

fosshost.org, a non-profit hosting company that provides hosting to many well-known free software projects, has recently given me a VPS.

I specifically requested one so that I can provide video hosting for the Libreboot project.

However, we've been having issues with Notabug for years. Lack of a search function is one example.

I have a recent wget backup of the Notabug libreboot pages (including issues). Will only take some regexp and I can extract issues and format them nicely, and archive them nicely on the new site.

I plan to set up a GitLab instance using this VPS that has been provided by FossHost. Swiftgeek has wanted GitLab for libreboot for years now, but I could never find a trustworthy hosting provider (GitLab is very resource intensive).

I have now found that provider. Fosshost is a wonderful organisation.

I assume you're against using gitlab.com - so am I. I'm talking about hosting GitLab CE on a VPS hosted by the Libreboot project, at git.libreboot.org

I saw your post about closing "we need a team of testers for the next libreboot thread"

Should this entire repository be closed?

And also, I agree, 1984hosting does look like a good vps.

I was going to suggest libregit.. but its been closed. So there's that...

Don't let the flames of libreboot go out even if its rebranded. :)

I have other questions, such as will your builds have intel neutered if possible, but should I wait to ask them or ask them in retroboot the new bug area?
