继Google Reader之后,Google Code也要停止服务了

Google Code自2006年为广大程序员提供服务,可以说为开源提供了不可磨灭的贡献,曾经在里面获取和学习到了很多有用的代码,也在讨论组里面看到了很多解决问题的办法。但Google的意思是说近几年涌现出了很多优秀的开源项目托管网站,比如GitHubBitbucket,在接下来的几个月,Google Code上不再接受放新的项目,但现有的功能将提供到2015年8月,之后上面的所有项目将会变成只读的,再然后Google Code站会关闭,但是会提供链接下载项目。

继Google Reader之后,Google Code也要停止服务了

Google能从实验室走出来的东西,说实话都是很不错的,先是Google Reader停止服务,现在又是Google Code,真是可惜啊。没办法互联网就是这样,瞬息万变,但这些一定会被程序员所铭记。
如下是邮件原文:

Hello,

Earlier today, Google announced we will be turning down Google Code Project Hosting. The service started in 2006 with the goal of providing a scalable and reliable way of hosting open source projects. Since that time, millions of people have contributed to open source projects hosted on the site.

But a lot has changed since 2006. In the past nine years, many other options for hosting open source projects have popped up, along with vibrant communities of developers. It’s time to recognize that Google Code’s mission to provide open source projects a home has been accomplished by others, such as GitHub and Bitbucket.

We will be shutting down Google Code over the coming months. Starting today, the site will no longer accept new projects, but will remain functionally unchanged until August 2015. After that, project data will be read-only. Early next year, the site will shut down, but project data will be available for download in an archive format.

As the owner of the following projects, you have several options for migrating your data.

The simplest option would be to use the Google Code Exporter, a new tool that will allow you to export your projects directly to GitHub. Alternatively, we have documentation on how to migrate to other services — GitHub, Bitbucket, and SourceForge — manually.

For more information, please see the Google Open Source blog or contact google-code-shutdown@google.com.

-The Google Code team
