[Scummvm-devel] Plans to move away from SF.net

So the move of the forums is mostly so that we can share accounts with trac (which makes a lot of sense), and the plan is to keep the wiki on hosteurope?
Speaking of the wiki I will try to motivate myself (as I do every 6 months - but this time I will try a bit more :P ) to finally upgrade from the prehistoric version we still use to the latest version. I should have some time next week to test that everything works properly and do the upgrade early next year.

Also are we keeping sf.net for anything? I am for example thinking of the Donate button that is still there on the new web site and points to http://sourceforge.net/p/scummvm/donate/ (although this redirect to paypal - in something that looks like dutch - so I don't know if that actually depends on sourceforge).

Note: on the new web site, I did not remember having the issue you mentioned when I switched the language a few days ago. So I tried again and it seems to be related to cache. If you clear the cache, and then change the language, the change is immediate. But I don't know if that helps find a solution.

That is primarily because of their frequent downtimes, and although we weren't affected, because of their uncanny business practices of repackaging windows builds with adware. Other factors is slowness of the service, ads on downloads, super-slow tech support.
