Hi all,
Many of you have noticed the main git server
git.android-x86.org was down. Me too.
I'm also surprised that so many people
want to download the android-x86 source code.
(but why we don't have so many contributors?)

The git server is provided by TANet Hualien Center
and maintained by some volunteers from Taiwan
Linux user group (TLUG). It provides many services
for TLUG for over 10 years and serves our project
over 5 years.

I appreciate the guys who helped to maintain it.
However, the server seems to be too old to serve us
and not in a well-maintained status now.
So far I just know the server seems has some hardware
problems (maybe the harddisks). I can't fix it remotely.
Unfortunately I can't reach any of the administrators even now.

If this can't be fixed in one week,
I'm considering to move the git server to
more modern services like SourceForge of github.
But it needs some time to setup.
Stay tuned.

Really bad news!
Thanks for your hard working.

Maybe you can consider the FOC server of JD  https://code.jd.com/.

Sorry to hear that. Why not consider github?

With Google Code closing, it would be good to move issues list somewhere else too. Or at least have a detailed road map, what tasks need work. That should attract more contributors.

Agreed. I'd be happy to contribute if I knew what needed work, and how to do it. I'd +1 GitHub as well. The workflow is built in nicely.

Actually, on the contribution end, I can also move the code over to GitHub, I've done that whole thing before. Just tedious. So Chih, if you want to create and org for Android-x86 I'd be happy to manage the moving of existing source.

Chih-Wei, 

Thank you. It works now :) ! For one small question, is the Lollipop-x86 now being considered as stable?

Best,
Joseph

Repo sync -c will fetch only the branch needed.

Er, what is rude about the comment below? It does in fact seem quite helpful
to me, for those who aren't too familiar with git.

I didn't take as a response to me. :) I had to take a deep breath to not post something about people being rude as well.
