Git changes & impact to Overlays hostnames

Saturday 25th of April 2015 12:00:00 AM

As previously announced [1] [2], and previously in the discussion of merging Overlays with Gentoo’s primary SCM hosting (CVS+Git): The old overlays hostnames (git.overlays.gentoo.org and overlays.gentoo.org) have now been disabled, as well as non-SSH traffic to git.gentoo.org. This was a deliberate move to seperate anonymous versus authenticated Git traffic, and ensure that anonymous Git traffic can continued to be scaled when we go ahead with switching away from CVS. Anonymous and authenticated Git is now served by seperate systems, and no anonymous Git traffic is permitted to the authenticated Git server.

If you have anonymous Git checkouts from any of the affected hostnames, you should switch them to using one of these new URLs:

  • https://anongit.gentoo.org/git/$REPO
  • http://anongit.gentoo.org/git/$REPO
  • git://anongit.gentoo.org/$REPO

If you have authenticated Git checkouts from the same hosts, you should switch them to this new URL:

  • git+ssh://git@git.gentoo.org/$REPO

In either case, you can trivially update any existing checkout with:
git remote set-url origin git+ssh://git@git.gentoo.org/$REPO
(be sure to adjust the path of the repository and the name of the remote as needed).

  • Interview with Wolthera
    My name is Wolthera, I am 25, studied Game Design and currently studying Humanities, because I want to become a better game designer, and I hope to make games in the future as a job. I also draw comics, though nothing has been published yet. [...] After I played a lot with MyPaint, I heard from people that Krita 2.4 was the shit. When I went to the website at the time (which is the one before the one before the current) it just looked alien and strange, and worse: there was no Windows version, so I couldn’t even try it out. So I spent a few more years having fun with MyPaint alone, but eventually I got tired of its brush engine and wanted to try something more rough. When I checked Krita again, it had two things: a new, considerably more coherent website (the one before this one) and a Windows build. Around that time it was still super unstable and it didn’t work with my tablet. But MyPaint also had tablet problems, so I had no qualms about dual booting to Linux and trying it out there.
  • GSoC with KDE
    So, my project is titled: Better Tooling for Baloo. Let me begin by explaining what Baloo is. According to its wiki page it is "Baloo is a metadata and search framework by KDE." What exactly does it mean? Baloo is responsible for providing full text search capabilities to KDE applications. It doesn't end there it also provides searching on basis of metadata of various types of files. To acomplish this it indexes file contents and metadata using various plugins ,called extractors, to handle different types of files. It then exposes the data it has indexed with the help of various API's. So thats a very high level view of how it works. Now, my project, as the title states will provide better tools for Baloo. These tools will mainly be:
