Ah, this is actually really useful (since distributed SCMs don’t have
the subproject support of CVS and SVN). Guess it doesn’t matter now
though …---------- Forwarded message ----------

Subject: Changes to Git repository - Multiple Repositories now supported
Hello! You’re receiving this message because your SourceForge project uses
We have some good news and some bad news. First, the good news: As of
2009-08-20, each project can now have multiple Git source repositories.
The bad news? We’ve moved some stuff around, and it will probably mean a
bit of reconfiguration for you.
Since each project can have multiple Git repositories, we’ve updated the
URLs for accessing your gitweb interface so that you can specify the
repository name. For example:
The repository you were using before we made this change has been given a
repository name that’s the same as your project name, so it can be found
If you visit http://yourproject.git.sf.net/, you will now be given a list
of your project’s repositories.
A similar adjustment is also necessary for the URLs you use to access your
Git repository. For example, a “git clone” command should now look
something like this:
Unfortunately, this breaks any links you may have made to the gitweb
interface, so you’ll need to change them. You also may want to notify your
community about the changed location of your Git repository. We apologize
for the extra work, but we couldn’t keep the same naming structure for all
SCMs without some breakage.
You may have noticed that your project’s feed data is in the process of
being regenerated, and some of your Git events may be missing. We hope to
empty and regenerate the Project Feed data relating to Git for all projects
by the end of this week.
If you’ve got any questions regarding these URL changes, please don’t
hesitate to contact us: http://sourceforge.net/support
