Hi David (and all),
I had some problems at the beginning, but they were at my end of the
connections -- at the moment I have to use a shared internet connection
and someone was hogging it up to the point where the HTTPS sessions died
Anyway -- it works now and I started reshuffling my other projects into
the structure I wanted them for a few years :-) It seems all good, apart
from the fact that the CIA option they offer (e.g.
http://cia.navi.cx/stats/project/toscanaj) is not the same as trac, not
even as good as the old cvslogs mailing lists I used -- both of these
offer easy search on the commit messages, while I haven't found that
option on CIA. But there is an option to hook it a script to mail
someone, too -- I will reactivate the mailing lists for my projects.
PS: after whinging again I figured I should actually check if it is
feasible to install trac on an SF account. Currently the answer seems to
be a "no, but" -- the problem being that HTTP authentication needs to be
configured, which requires access to the http.conf (see
subscribed to the trac lists and asked for an update on that topic, I'll
tell you if it should work somehow.
One of the nice things with trac is that it works in hindsight, so it
shouldn't stop us from moving to SVN before that one is sorted.
