VegaStrike Repository is now on GitHub

Post by pyramid »

The long-time [Vega Strike SVN code repository](https://sourceforge.net/p/vegastrike/code/) has been moved to GitHub.

> [https://github.com/vegastrike/Vega-Strike-Engine-Source](https://github.com/vegastrike/Vega-Strike-Engine-Source)

The move has been concluded after this repo svn commit revision r13698 on 2015-08-04 23:02:01 +0000 also code named
> "version 0.5.2-alpha"

There were commits in this repo up to revision r13731 on 2017-06-21 20:11:56.

Those commits have been/are being merged with the new [GitHub Vegastrike project repo](https://github.com/vegastrike/).

All code from the local [trunk](#trunk) has been archived to both

- [branches/0.5.2alpha-archive](branches/0.5.2alpha-archive)
- [tags/0.5.2alpha-archive](tags/0.5.2alpha-archive)

No code or data has been removed and as long as the repository is available, it will remain accessible for historical research and forensics.

Please do however refrain from future commits to this repository to focus your contributions on the [GitHub Vegastrike project repo](https://github.com/vegastrike/) repository.

I am saddened that a proprietary hosting service was selected to host this libre software project.
