  • Priority changed from High to Low

The github mirror is not an official mirror, so I'm putting this to low. I've notified Eric though so he can have a look.

I'm sorry, but how was I to know that this was "not an official mirror" by reading this under "download":

or clone it from the git mirror hosted at GitHub:

This is the prefered way to get Redmine if you want to benefit from the latest improvements and be able to upgrade easily.

It sounded moderately official to me. I'm deploying using Heroku which deploys using git and all of the tracked projects are git-based so the above choice being one of the two alternatives listed as "the prefered way" seemed like the way to go.

I'm sorry if I sounded harsher than I intended to, but to make a long story short: it was an official mirror (mind you: mirror, not source). I'm not sure how much energy Eric is still willing to pour into maintaining it, so I'll edit the install page to reflect the current state and let him change it as needed.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

Ok, the github mirror is working again, at least for me, closing this issue.

#5 Updated by Eric Davis over 8 years ago

It was a problem on Github's side. I'll be maintaining the mirror as long as it doesn't affect my other work. Even though I'm not working on the Redmine core anymore, I still care about the community here which includes having a stable and automatic git mirror.
