I posted the following to the LINUX_BBS echo about an update in the SVN repostity for TinyTIC:
> In case you had not already heard: The author commited an update to the
> TinyTIC repository for a version v0.6.1 (rev. 60, viewable at [1]),
> which is going to be undergoing some testing before making a release out

In one response, Janis Kracht posted the following on 23 Sep 2009 in response:
> Is this ready for distribution now? I see v0.6.1 at sourceforge..I'd like
> to get it out when ready also via the Utillnx FDN since previous tinytic

I responded that a v0.6.1 archive was not yet available but I had been wondering about the best way to get it distributed when it did become available and so was glad to hear from her about it.

JAMlib Sourceforge project

Because I'm interested in packaging jamnntpd, which includes an embedded copy of the jam library which is a no-no in Debian, I went to request access to the jamlib project at SourceForge;  however, I found that although it was still present it was showing as being Inactive and did not have a listed project administrator nor any other members.   Requested becoming the project administraton, which has now been granted.  (Note that I also re-added the original member of the project, although he may drop himself back out again.)

Still need to migrate the existing CVS repository to a GIT repository.  And also create and publish a web site for it.

Johan Billing FTN web sites

Peter Krefting had a news item [1] back in July that Johan Billing had resurrected the CrashMail and JamNNTPd sites on Checked and found that he also now has sites and associated mercurial repositories for and jamlib as well:


FTNAPPS website repository moved to git repository

Migrated the FTN Applications web site repository at SourceForge from where it was in the SVN repository to a git repository[1], where it is now the branch named website.

Create GIT repositories for ftnapps project

SourceForge now supports multiple GIT repositories for each project hosted there.   Created GIT repositories each for crashmail, jamnntpd, tinytic, & vireq;   and kept one named as ftnapps for the web site and any other common documentation or other files.
