Fink:SourceForge

From the Fink Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Fink was brought to sourceforge.net a few months after its founding. We've valued our relationship with this service over the years (and vice versa: we were one of the earliest "Project of the Month" at sourceforge), but as fink has grown, parts of our operation have migrated away from sourceforge. Currently, sourceforge provides us with the following services:

  • Accounts for Fink developers, and for the fink project itself
  • Hosting of mailing lists
  • CVS (including full CVS tarballs compiled daily; including read-only anonymous CVS access for our users; and including a nice web interface to CVS)
  • The sourceforge release system, used to release the files of fink projects and to host backups of source files from other opensource projects
  • Bug tracker (and related trackers: for submitted packages, for patches, and so on)
