InterNetNews (INN) 在測試 Git

在 mailing list 上看到「Test Git repository for INN」這個消息,看起來 InterNetNews 也在嘗試換到 Git 上了,目前是選擇用 GitHub,在「InterNetNews/inn」這邊。

整個從 CVS 換到 Subversion 再到現在開始進入 Git 的環境了。

沒有全部自己搞的理由也有提到,主要就是免費與方便,然後社群也已經知道 GitHub 是什麼了:

GitHub was chosen because it's (a) free (as in price), (b) widely understood and used already, and (c) easy for me to set up. I know some folks have reservations about GitHub because it's not free software, and I understand, but I don't think we're committing heavily to their platform (everyone who has a clone of the Git repository has all the important data and can move it elsewhere), and other things like GitLab are only open core anyway. Hosting everything on 100% free software (depending on the choice of free software) loses us some useful features (I plan to set up GitHub Actions for CI) and requires more resources that I don't really have to spend on it. That said, everyone is certainly welcome to mirror the Git repository elsewhere if they want.

之後會跑 CI,算是這些年軟體工程必備的工具了...
