git.alpinelinux.org migration a month ago

From Carlo Landmeter to ~sircmpwn/alpine-devel

Hi Alpine Developers,

In recent months we have been migrating most of Alpine Linux repositories to
GitLab. This means that git.a.o has been converted to a mirror instead of our
origin. Except our regular Alpine Linux repositories it was also hosting some
different projects ie ACF, Hosted and User.

To prevent confusion and maintaining two different platforms
(GitLab and Gitolite) we would like to ask our developers to move their
repositories to GitLab. We have already created a new cgit interface which will
only hold our basic Alpine Linux repository as shown in the root of

We have moved our old repositories to https://git-old.alpinelinux.org/ so

Hi Natanael,

The url needs to have a colon like: git@gitlab.alpinelinux.org:alpine/aports.git

Switching aports origin to GitLab 3 months ago

From Carlo Landmeter to ~sircmpwn/alpine-devel

Dear Developers,

As Kevin pointed out few days ago [1] the Alpine Linux Infra team is going to
switch the git origin of aports from our git.alpinelinux.org source to our
GitLab instance. We are planning to do this on Monday the 16th of March 2020.
This means that developers will need to update the remotes of their local
aports repositories to the one from GitLab [2].

We are planning to keep git.alpinelinux.org as a mirror described in the issue
on GitLab [3].

To update your remote you can follow the steps described in [4].

For questions or remark use this email or the issue as mentioned in [3].
