I agree with the move to kernel.org; they have paid staff with time
and resources to look after this stuff; it's a resource we should use,
and it'll save us all time and/or money.
But I'm one of the "some people" who don't want to re-use the -dev
trees; let's just get properly named repos up there. These served
a different purpose, long ago.
If you want to rename to fstests, that's ok with me, but that's
potentially a different scope; depending on how much content in
the tree needs to be updated etc, I could see doing that a bit later
If/when you get the names truly settled, let me know and I'll help
with updating the wiki etc if you like.
As for the old tarballs - they do claim to be signed, right? So
if we can verify their identity, I see no harm in keeping them around.
As for mailing lists, is it possible to forward for a while, and
also send a reply back about the address change? That might be most
foolproof, then eventually stop the forwarding and just add a reply
about the list move, and leave that there until oss crumbles into
Thanks, and "May the source be with you" ;)
