Google Code to stop checking SourceForge names

Filed under
Software

Google open source and public sector programs manager Chris DiBona has announced that, from the 22nd of November, names for new projects created on the company's Project Hosting service will no longer be checked against SourceForge to see if the project name is already in use.

In post on the Open Source at Google blog, DiBona says that "Most of the time, the person creating the project on Google Project Hosting was the same person on SourceForge, looking to reserve the name on both". Additionally, the project on SourceForge was often inactive or had never actually been active.

  • testing flannel
    I noticed today (maybe I’ve noticed before, but forgotten) that the version of flannel in Fedora 23 is older than what’s available in CentOS. It looks like this is because no one tested the more-recent version of flannel in Fedora’s Bodhi, a pretty awesome application for testing packages.
