Description W. Trevor King 2013-02-16 16:49:07 UTC
HOMEPAGE in the current inotify-tools ebuilds point to SF, which currently redirects to GitHub:


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
$ wget -O - http://inotify-tools.sourceforge.net/ 2>/dev/null | grep REFRESH

Actual Results:  
   <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://wiki.github.com/rvoicilas/inotify-tools/">

(silly SF using HTTP-EQUIV in HTML instead of HTTP directly :()


Expected Results:  
Download a useful project page from SF.


Version 3.14 already uses GH for SRC_URI, but the older versions don't seem to be available on GH, either as tags or tarballs, which means that they should probably be retired :p.
