Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2015-03-22 10:50:16 UTC
Google announced on 
http://google-opensource.blogspot.de/2015/03/farewell-to-google-code.html
to close the "Google Code" repositories. 
The roadmap on this website is


    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.

Several hundred ebuilds rely on Google Code today. Most projects will move soon to github and other providers. 


Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Andrew Savchenko gentoo-dev 2015-03-27 07:48:37 UTC
What is the purpose of this bug? To enlist all ebuilds using google code?
Isn't it a bit premature?
Comment 2 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2015-03-28 17:43:11 UTC
Hi A.S., thank you for your comment on #544092. It is a tracker like #494678 and helps to keep an overview. It is not premature as some projects have already moved to sf, github and the like. It can not be bad to update the ebuilds early.  

grep 'google' -R --include="*.ebuild" /usr/portage | grep SRC | wc -l

reveals that 800+ packages are affected.

In the similar bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=494678 it took about one year to fix 50 %.

Some statistics:

grep 'google' -R --include="*.ebuild" /usr/portage | grep SRC | wc -l

uh...

$ find /usr/portage/metadata/md5-cache -type f -exec grep -l '^SRC_URI=.*google' {} + | wc -l
693

$ find /usr/portage/metadata/md5-cache -type f -exec grep -l '^SRC_URI=.*googlecode' {} + | wc -l

Comment 6 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2016-10-28 20:38:27 UTC
we have now a wiki page to organize and document the work while keeping the noise here to the minimum.
