    Lester Caine - 2013-07-07

    I've currently got a clone of the SVN on the go which I'll mirror on my site via
    Hg when it finishes downloading. It takes a while.

    I've already got a mirror of webtrees, but they have taken a path which does not
    fit in with how I want to set up a gedcom facility, so I'm looking to tidy up
    things with my firebird port of PGV against the current SVN while also being
    able to cherry pick some of the webtrees code where appropriate. The bit I need
    to pin down is exactly when the webtrees port was forked as I can't see a clear
    tagging. It may be obvious once I have both repo's but if someone has an answer
    it would save a bit of time ;)

    Lester:
    The split occurred in March 2010, when Greg Roach launched webtrees. This is before version 4.2.4 was releasd in Jan 2011.

    This discussion gives most of the background:

    I notice that you were involved in that discussion.

      I'd tracked down the exact dates and version numbers and listed them in the
      other post on Firebird.

      And my opinion there still stands. But that discussion has little to do with the
      current state of play. Except that politics rather than consensus is still
      getting in the way of everything :(

      I'm slowly getting things back under control after a couple of years of trying
      to move a large amount of legacy code from PHP5.2 to PHP5.4 and now I'm seeing a
      light at the end of the tunnel, I'm trying to pull everything else back up to
      date and I now have a hosting arrangement that will allow me to run my own
      repo's for the projects I am interested in. http://phpgedview.lsces.org.uk/docs/
      went up earlier, but I still need to get it's content looking more like it did
      with phpdoc1 before addressing the docblock error reports and tidying them up.
      I'll merge back to the SVN, but nothing has changed in 3 years ... well actually
      it has SF is even MORE useless than it was then ... so ditching it and sourcing
      stuff ourselves is more practical.

      'The Cloud' should not be a licence for the big boys to rip us off even more, it
      should be what it was originally intended as, a way of sharing resources, much
      like torrent file distribution, rather than building everything into someone
      else's systems. DVCS is a start to share once one gets away from the likes of
      github, bitbucket, and yes sourceforge.

    Obviously the email interface is another casualty of the 'improvements' to sourceforge :(
    Although post to some of my long time sf lists are still appearing in minutes, but this has taken several hours to appear even though it SAYS 27mins at the moment! I have a mail box on my local machine so I should not need to tramp around many sites to reply to that traffic - which is part of the point I've been trying to make ...
