Hi,

I was wondering what is the schedule update on the GtiHub mirror.
It seems to be behind the SVN repo quite often...

Hi,

If you need reliable updates then please use the official subversion repository on sourceforge.

Also discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=4024#p29501

Hi,

I understand that managing two mirrors is redundant work, but for my project I can hardly use SVN. My own code uses GIT and I use submodules to include ChibiOS. I could do this in another way, but submodules offer sanity checks (i.e. commit) and are much more convenient to use than doing all the stuff manually.
Maybe there is a way to automatically synchronize the GIT mirror with the SVN once a day or so? Any appropriate schedule would be very welcome ;)

Well, I do have some spare VPS with "infinite" bandwidth that could run a sync every 10 min. If barthess doesn't mind making the whole original current package plus scripts available, I can probably do the mirror on one of those VPSs. Also I guess I already have write access to the git repo.

Main mirror's problem is its fragility. It requires manual house keeping from time to time. Adding new branches or new names to author.txt for example.

Any way, here is ready to use archive https://yadi.sk/d/C-3kFuKa3JvLeZ Or you can create your own copy using this repo https://github.com/ChibiOS/maintenance (it contains all that I use).

I set up to update every 10 min. Let's wait for next commits to check if it works...

Hi all,

I have just made a couple of commits to the svn repository :) , I'm happy to confirm you that the github repository is correctly update from the svn. I did not made a measurement to see how many time it take to update (sorry) but it was about 13 and 12 minutes of refreshment. This time was given by the github tool.

Utzig, I sow your discussion with Barthess, could you please correct my email address on the authors.txt file from the following link: httpshttps://github.com/ChibiOS/maintenance/blob/master/authors.txt

If you need my email address I can send you a PM.

Thanks,
regards,

Theo.
