It may look that the decision for pagure as alioth replacement is already finalized, but thats not really true. I got a lot of feedback and tips in the last weeks, those made postpone my decision. Several alternative systems were recommend to meb, here are a few examples:

and probably several others. I won’t be able to evaluate all of those systems in advance of our sprint. Thats where you come in: if you are familiar with one of those systems or want to get familiar with. Please join us on our mailinglist and create a wiki page below https://wiki.debian.org/Alioth/GitNext with a review of your system.

What do we need to know?

  • Featureset compared to current alioth
  • Featureset compared to a popular system like github
  • Some implementation designs
  • Some information about scaling (expect something like 15.000 > 25.0000 repos)
  • Support for other version control systems
  • Advantages: why should we choose that system
  • Disadvantes: why shouldn’t we choose that system
  • License
  • Other interesting features
  • Details about extensibility
  • A really nice thing would be a working vagrant box / vagrantfile + ansible/puppet to test things

If you want to start on such a review, please announce it on the mailinglist.

If you have questions, ask me on IRC, Twitter or mail. Thanks for your help!
