End of Life of Google Code

I had a suspicion that this was going to happen after Google Code stopped
allowing new binary downloads to be created last year. The relevant dates are:
- March 12, 2015 - New project creation disabled.
- August 24, 2015 - The site goes read-only. You can still checkout/view
project source, issues, and wikis.
- January 25, 2016 - The project hosting service is closed. You will be able to
download a tarball of project source, issues, and wikis. These tarballs will
be available throughout the rest of 2016.
This means opkg will need to migrate somewhere else. I'm personally not in
favour of using github or bitbucket as we already have hosting for the git repo
provided by The Yocto Project.
I'll look into this more over the next few weeks - I'm outgoing as a maintainer
and don't have the spare mental capacity to do much development, but I could
probably throw together a simple static site and talk to the Yocto Project folks
about running a bug tracker for opkg. I have experience with installing,
administering and using the Mantis bug tracker at work so I could get that setup
within a day or two if other people think Mantis is a good choice?
