Re: Berlios closing at the end of the year

A sign of the financial crisis trickling through; this won't be the last we'll see of that..

I think much more software is endangered; it might be the end of some silently abandoned software as the developer won't take the trouble of migrating.
Hope someone else  takes care of these orphaned packages.

They will get moved somewhere. Arch Linux is a last resort. The site bandwidth is capped at 512 kb/s.

Re: Berlios closing at the end of the year

wow, that is kinda sad indeed,
considering,
"...Open Source is understood by Fraunhofer FOKUS as a paradigm for future-oriented intelligent use of IT..."
It's too bad big "Manufacturers'" couldn't see it that way.
