Obsoletion notice on githubredir

Submitted by gwolf on Fri, 10/03/2014 - 13:58

Back in 2009, I set up githubredir.debian.net, a service that allowed following using uscan the tags of a GitHub-based project.

Maybe a year or two later, GitHub added the needed bits in their interface, so it was no longer necessary to provide this service. Still, I kept it alive in order not to break things.

But as it is just a silly web scraper, every time something changes in GitHub, the redirector breaks. I decided today that, as it is no longer a very useful project, it should be retired.

So, in the not too distant future (I guess, next time anything breaks), I will remove it. Meanwhile, every page generated will display this:

(of course, with the corresponding project/author names in)

Consider yourselves informed.
