GitHub llvm-mirror 8d behind

Hi all

In case anyone has a remote to the (unofficial)
https://github.com/llvm-mirror, please note that all the repos are at
least 8 days behind.
There's no warning about it. The page still says it's "Updated every
five minutes".

I don’t know what’s wrong with those repos, but just as a reminder – everyone should be migrating to the <https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/> repository.

Ouch, sorry about that!

Server had unrelated issue that interfered,
should just need to be given some words of encouragement.

("don't give up, you can do it! try again!")

Thanks for the message, it's updating again now
but will take a few minutes before all repos are caught up.

And yes this is just a cronjob on a UIUC machine...
it will likely need a replacement in 6-12 months
as I'm not sure I'll be able to maintain it as-is
once I graduate. Shouldn't be any trouble to move.

It makes me happy that so many folks have found it useful
for so much longer than I ever expected, so even
with the official repo I'm inclined to keep it
alive for (at least) the near future.

Hi Will,

The subproject repositories that you’re mirroring might stop updating after the official “monorepo” repository transition is complete (see: http://llvm.org/docs/Proposals/GitHubMove.html#read-only-sub-project-mirrors). Can you please consider adding a warning to your GitHub account/mirrors? Or better still: direct people toward to LLVM GitHub transition documentation?

Thanks!
Dave

Yes indeed, it very helped me too during the last years. Thanks for
operating the mirrors!

Seeing Tom's reminder,
http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2019-July/133840.html, what's
your plan anyway towards monorepo transition?

Hi Will,

Gentle reminder that the mirror is behind again, not sure if that is because of the official sources getting moved.

Gentle reminder that the mirror is behind again, not sure if that is because of the official sources getting moved.

As both the official source and the mirror are now on GitHub, I'd say
the mirror has served the end of its usefulness. Obviously if you want
to keep maintaining it that's fair game, but it would be good to
update the repository description to reflect the monorepo.

Cheers,
Nicolai

After the switch to the monorepository,
http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/ is stale. The subversion repository
is the source for the official git clone at
https://git.llvm.org/git/llvm.git which is the source for
https://github.com/llvm-mirror. Hence, all these are stale as well.

Before the switch we have discussed about an SVN mirror of the
monorepository. A possible solution was a bot that would split the
monorepository back to the old repository for each commit and made
accessible through GitHib's SVN bridge:
https://help.github.com/en/github/importing-your-projects-to-github/support-for-subversion-clients.
Any any case, the git hashes would be necessarily different from the
previous llvm-mirrors.

This has not been implemented and I guess it never will. You should
switch to the official repository located at
https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project.
