I just disabled cvs and svn on the sourceforge project management.
The users of my radiation transfer code that have checked out blitz
for it have expressed confusion, and it was brought to my attention
that if you looked at the statistics you can see continuous anonymous
reads of the cvs repo, but none of the mercurial ones. Clearly, there
are users out there that are getting an old library version, which
isn't surprising. The only way you'd know about the repo switch is by
reading the devel mailing list.
Sorry for the executive decision. If we do decide to switch from
Mercurial, it's easy to turn them back on, but for now de-facto
development is on that repo so to minimize confusion it seems better
to just hide the other options.
Note that the cvs repo is still *functional* even if it's invisible on
the web site. You can still update and diff (I don't know about
commit), so if someone still has un-committed changes they can still
We should probably send out a message to the user list, too, so people
know that they shouldn't continue updating their old cvs repos.
