Re: Repository switch over to Salsa?

Hello Guillem,
Alioth just shut down. Any news on the move?

I just rechecked the page and I did not find the answer, just the pros
and cons of the alternatives.

I follow the mailing list. Also I strongly follow your commit policies
(which might be improved, so please let me know). Sometimes I also
fix some very minor issue in the documentation (like spelling fixes, I
think I also unbroke other translations previously).

I'd strongly prefer the current workflow. Having to switch to a
(partial) web based workflow would make me seriously reconsider my
involvement. Also I'm not sure everything I've done so far (like
stated above or fixes for errors in the (old)stable translation)
would still be possible then.
