Can we expect this to be stable in future?
During the short lifetime of the redirector -- it started in May -- Google
changed their links once. And the redirector was born because they changed it
I have no problem in shutting down googlecode.debian.net -- apart from the fact
that people using it are forced to go back to code.google.com -- but I'd like
not to touch my debian/watch files every two months :)

Thank you for your interest!
