Dear Everyone,
You could try https://notabug.org/, which is Dutch-owned and hosted in
Germany. Note larger repositories (>100 Mb) are accepted per-case.
I have requested notabug.org to provide 1GB space for openbsd src git repo.
It would be good to demonstrate that that you also want this idea
implemented.

So, kindly help by voting Yes to my online poll.

The poll is at https://doodle.com/poll/rbg53x3dyd7i4y5d

Thanks very much.

I think you are coming dangerously close to becoming an impostor.
You are not an OpenBSD developer, so i don't think you have any
business requesting services for OpenBSD from third parties.

Of course, everybody is free to redistribute the OpenBSD source code.
But that doesn't mean doing so is a good idea when you have no reason
whatsoever. Unofficial distribution can cause confusion as to which
version is reliable. Who is going to maintain the offshoot you are
cobbling together? *You* obviously cannot be trusted. It will soon
become orphaned and a distraction.

If you want to tell people to play with OpenBSD, tell them to do
it the OpenBSD way. Stop your whining, your github-fanboy-attitude,
and your annoying chatter and distractive campaining, tell people to
use CVS, and start doing some real work instead.

If the VCS seems so important to you that you think OpenBSD is
unusable with CVS, your priorities are completely screwed up, so
just stop using it and go use Windows or Linux or whatever.

Yours,
Ingo

Hello !

See https://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html in detail Setting up an
anoncvs mirror

There you can read for a complete mirror ... Anoncvs mirrors currently
require about 6GB of disk (and it will grow!),

For my understanding, why should I get src from your git mirror if I
need for ports www xenocara CVS ?

Would it not be a better idea to run a CVS mirror (if one is needed)
and provide also git if people really need it ?

IMHO CVS works fine for me so, why demonstarte that git works ?

Regards,

Christoph

So, kindly help by voting Yes to my online poll.
The poll is "We want an OpenBSD Source Repository"????
Really???

But there are multiple source code mirrors.
Even anoncvs.ca.openbsd.org isn't located in US.

German mirrors are located in nuernberg and frankfurt.

Dear Mike and others,

OpenBSD is great project. It should reach every country equally.
That is called "Parity". Rest of the world is at par with USA and Canada.

Have a look at this picture today

Loading Image...

If you provide git protocol access to USA and Canada.
I want git protocol access for Australia, Russia, Japan, Congo, Netherlands
and Rest of the World.

If you give Mr.Tom at San Francisco git access to src,
and Mr. Dick at Vancouver git access to src,
then Harry at London should also have equal or equivalent access.

Since we cannot provide equal access. Provide equivalent access. Simple
Idea Really.

Equivalent implies get a non US box up and running with git hosting of
openbsd src.

Currently, we are telling Mr.Harry, - You should not access src via our git
channel.
People in other countries have forked and cloned. Give them/us/me another
box
where we can get legally too via the same protocol.

Parity. Good idea.

Kindly think this over.

Dinesh

This doesn't make sense. This seems like a whole lot of effort for very
little return. What is wrong with any of the ~dozen cvs mirrors
available that aren't located in the states? This seems like a huge
duplication of effort.

Why not do some testing to find the speediest mirror relative to your
location, and then use all the extra effort you saved on something more
productive?

Dinesh --

everything you say below is a giganic pile of dung. We make all our
software available to everyone. The internet spans the planet.

You are making stuff up, and it is not appreciated how you appear to
be misrepresenting the project.

Please go fluff up your sense of selfworth elsewhere.

Dinesh,

Short answer: No.

Long answer: I speak on behalf of myself only. Just what exactly is wrong
with the already existing CVS? Why is a Git repo required?

Learn CVS, then teach it to your students.

Can you not host your own git server and just do a nightly cvs import into that git server? Or am i missing something here to this conversation?
