The Fink project is now running its own server at finkproject.org, thanks to the generosity of www.xs4all.nl.
Note: a number of services provided by the server require authentication. THERE IS SOMETHING NONSTANDARD ABOUT OUR CERTIFICATE; HERE IS HOW TO GET YOUR SYSTEM TO RECOGNIZE IT.
Currently, we host the following components of fink on this server:
- This wiki
- The main fink website
- The package database
- The Distfiles project (originally a joint effort with MacPorts (formerly DarwinPorts))
- The archive browser
- The master server for selfupdate via rsync
- DNS Hosting
Details on server administration are here.
We do not yet have specific plans to migrate the remaining external components to this server:
- The package-submissions and other trackers (presently hosted on SourceForge).
- The mailing lists (presently hosted on SourceForge).
- The CVS repository (presently hosted on SourceForge).
- The file release system (presently hosted on SourceForge).
