Hi, guys! I'm considering helping out with the coding side of things, on GitHub. I did get the GitHub version of Vega Strike building and running on my Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS x64 machine just today. Had to make a few changes to about 8 files. I would be happy to submit a pull request, if someone wants to add me as a contributor on GH. Username: stephengtuggy

I've been coding for 20+ years, and I do know C, C++, and Python.

One question I do have is: Did you guys ever settle on a set of community guidelines? Those will be important to have, I think.

Thanks!

Considering the last commit was on Aug 9, 2015... I'd suggest that this hasn't all gone to plan.

Thanks; is https://github.com/ermo/privateer_wcu is relevant port of the Privateer stuff?

If so I can work from that. Shouldn't be a problem to get it moved over to the VegaStrike GH org. If not, I'll certainly PM you with details so we can make the move.

Thanks,

Ben

Welcome Ben most of the source code has been cloned to GitHub but not Privateer :( Though I have I have a clone of it's svn repo locally on one of my older boxes so I can burn it to a disc and mail it to you I guess not sure if the binary will run on current OS's though several of libraries we use have had API changes since the last release just PM me if you are interested it the PR source and data.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Any progress on this?

I'd love to be able to use the Privateer remake again, and see that going. GitHub seems to be where devs are mostly gathering, though GitLab (aside from their recent administrative foobar) is also generally a good alternative.
Would love to know, and can help out if needed.

FWIW: I've got both SF access (https://sourceforge.net/u/shounin/profile/); I was an SVN admin for 10+ years; and I am daily on GitHub (https://github.com/BenjamenMeyer/) now too - and I'm familiar with various conversions (svn:externals -> git submodules), C/C++ and Python (2.5->3).

Anyway, SF apparently have stopped drooling and works properly, not counting tiny nuisances.
Though moving from SVN may make sense.
In which case github VS could have a mirror in one direction and an auto-synchronised branch in the other? The more the merrier, and all that.

I haven't heard of, or experienced, any of the things you mention. Please provide a link if you think this is of any relevance to Vega Strike.
I mean The Great Ruby Shitstorm - the whole sordid story around a developer kicked out of Opal for being politically doubleplusungood on twitter, the following codes-of-conduct flamewar (and "Contributor Covenant"), etc.
Also, github removed projects that digi-mao crowd didn't approve, such as "C+="
edit: oh, found a juicy one: see here. So it was not just a bunch of internet-cheerleaders and one manager got loonie and started the shenanigans, or something like that.
They gave up later, but this may mean many things - learned a lesson about paying too much attention to the abyss? retreated for now? who can tell?..

I'm saying that there are more than two open repository farms. There are gna.org tuxfamily.org savannah.gnu.org bitbucket.org and probably as many or more others.
Why not to consider pros and cons of more than one available option first? SF isn't on fire or something.

We may still get a few more coders from the GitHub community we do have to be open to them.

I didn't get this.

Do you suggest some other place or that we stay on Sourceforge? I just suggested GitHub because it worked so well for LMMS. It was a real vitamin injection to the project and I thought it could do the same for Vega Strike. That's all.
In the end the work is right now done by Klauss alone, latest commit was 1 day ago, so I guess it's up to him where he wants to do the coding.

Sourceforge simply doesn't have useable download right now. Though repositories still work.

Wasn't there some unhealthy motions going on at GitHub?
There were commissars running around to the point of automatically adding some political declaration in ridiculous Duckspeak to projects, and some talks of management blackmail?..
I observed some splashes when they were loud, but didn't pay much attention lately. How all this ended?

https://github.com/vegastrike

Status of things a year later.

Well, it's not quite completed. I think most things are there but as it seems not all info on the individual pull requests. You see that as lack of statistics for instance. The built-in import function on GitHub didn't do all necessary actions there. Also the Boost libraries aren't pulled in automatically any longer.

Will be joining you was waiting on some semi-official sanction

So. I added hellcatv and the next day the GitHub site was in full bloom. :shock:
JackS and the cat has been busy pulling in packages and organizing the site.
It looks promising indeed. :wink:

(FWIW: Google Code is shutting down and basically advises people to move their projects there to GitHub.)

Also fwiw, I poked HellcatV wrt. SourceForge being sold/etc. and I believe he's interested in exploring a move to GitHub. He says he's PM'd Gonzo -- not sure he'll actually show up in the forums aside from that.
(Even if we don't have time for active development, we're rather averse to, for instance, SF's new (or old) owners deciding we're abandoned and turning the release DLs into bundleware or other silliness :-P)

my 2 cents regarding storage/etc. concerns among various hosts (or less than 2 cents because... I just glanced at things briefly over lunch today):
a) Wouldn't worry about storage/BW at GitHub as a first order concern until/unless problems actually arise -- note that VS would be broken up into multiple repositories so that a git-appropriate teams-based access paradigm could be employed
b) If storage/BW concerns of the minor (i.e. thou shalt upgrade thy account as opposed to major=mortgage your house for the bandwidth bill) variety arise, I imagine that the gainfully employed among the elderly post-developer set can manage a few $/month, somehow, to make sure the lights stay on.
c) gitlab seems reasonable, but a cursory glance didn't seem to indicate a particularly better set of offerings. Maybe I'm missing something (I miss a lot these days :) )

A few things.

All forks for now pull from the VS SVN off SF.net

SF.net and Slshdot are being sold off by Dice, so the few of us here left with Project Admin permissions need to actually decide if we should try and stay with SF or do as many others have done and just abandon ship (which could be a good thing)

If we do abandon ship we will need to find a new home that works well for us, be it GitHub or Google Code or whoever is left.

I was never here, this post is a figment of your imagination. :mrgreen:

:)
One thing you missed is that every good changes made in a fork or clone is de facto an
improvement for vegastrike .
I am sure that nothing new will come from here , but because of the license terms , from
the work of some organization based on vegastrike's sources .

Because how is made the recruitment here ?
With wich criteriums ?

The next guy that will make a major improvement in a mod will be contacted by the guy
that is admin today , who will claim is right from the license over the code.
After some congrats lines , they will be " friends " and the modder will become an other brick in the wall .

That's all folk : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9434BoGkNQ

You're just way more faster than I am. Maybe I'll come to the conclusion that it's time to move on some day but I'm not in a hurry right now.
