Vss2Svn project moved, call for help - PLEASE READ

Toby Johnson
Hello everyone,

As I've been planning to do for some time now, I've moved this project to its final resting home at Google Code where I hope it can live out the rest of its days peacefully. I have set the Subversion repo to read-only and disabled new subscriptions to the mailing list. I'll soon shut down the mailing list completely.

IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN HELPING THIS PROJECT, here's what I need:

* Join the new Google Group mailing list. I decided not to automatically subscribe all existing users to the new group since that felt too spammy, so please join the new group at: http://groups.google.com/group/vss2svn
* Help me clean up the wiki. Luckily most of the wiki syntax is the same as Trac so I was able to directly export/import the wiki pages, but some of the markup and links didn't work.
* On the same note, please go through the wiki and remove references to PumaCode, the old repository location, the old mailing list, and the old downloads section.

Someday I hope to dig up my ActiveState Perl-to-exe tool and convert Alexander Gavrilov's set of patches (at /branches/Alexander) into an exe for others to download, but at least I'll try to put a note on the new wiki that users may want to try that version.

I've copied all previous nightly builds to the Downloads page at the new site.

Thanks again for your help. I'll send out another email in the next couple weeks once I shut down this list for good.

Toby

Whoops... the new Google Code location is: http://code.google.com/p/vss2svn/

And when I say "set the Subversion repo to read-only", that of course means only the old one at PumaCode. If anyone decides to commit new patches I'd certainly accept them. (Unfortunately Google Code doesn't support Git, and I'm not familiar with Mercurial, so I decided against using a distributed VCS).

Also, let me know if anyone would like to be an admin of the new group.
