Actually, I was wrong. Or, rather, had outdated information --
apparently getting a Fedora account and becoming a contributor of a
project that is hosted on Fedorahosted.org no longer involves any sort
of signing of CLAs or any other paperwork. These days it's just a
matter of filling out a sign-up form. Since the project already has a
home there, I think it's best if we left it the way it is without
moving to any other services.

I know it's not as hip and shiny as github or launchpad, and it's SVN
instead of git, but it also means that I can continue using Trac, with
which I have lots of experience. :)

I have updated the wiki page to include the "Contributing" section
(see https://fedorahosted.org/epylog/wiki#Contributing). There you can
find a link to the FAS sign-up form. Once you have a FAS account and
are interested in getting SVN access, please let me know and I'll do
the necessary group magic.

Interestingly enough, I may soon be in a position where using Epylog
may suddenly become relevant to me again. If that does happen, then
I'll definitely continue working on it.

This mailing list is dead. Long live the new mailing list!


To complete the migration to Fedora Hosted, I've decided to move the
mailing list there as well. Please see
https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/epylog to subscribe.

That's right -- I've decided not to automatically transfer all
subscribers from the old list to the new. The project has been dormant
for many years and many of you probably subscribed years ago and since
then forgot -- you're probably getting annoyed at all the email
messages you're suddenly getting. :)

If you are really interested in continuing to work with Epylog, please
go and re-subscribe to the new mailing list at
https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/epylog. I will give it
another couple of weeks or so and then close this mailing list (on
