Google code is dead

Or will be soon.


"The service started in 2006 with the goal of providing a scalable and reliable way of hosting open source projects. Since that time, millions of people have contributed to open source projects hosted on the site.
But a lot has changed since 2006. In the past nine years, many other options for hosting open source projects have popped up, along with vibrant communities of developers. It’s time to recognize that Google Code’s mission to provide open source projects a home has been accomplished by others, such as GitHub and Bitbucket.
We will be shutting down Google Code over the coming months. Starting today, the site will no longer accept new projects, but will remain functionally unchanged until August 2015. After that, project data will be read-only. Early next year, the site will shut down, but project data will be available for download in an archive format."



Guys - are you really that short of storage space?


Anyway, I've moved all my stuff on to github.com, to  github.com/robcarver17/python-uk-trading-tax-calculator and github.com/robcarver17/ibswigsystematicexamples to be precise. Links updated in all relevant posts, I hope.

The google code stuff will no longer be updated. It's still, obviously, a git repo so it should hopefully be straightforward to switch over.
