GitHub temporary unavailable from comand line?
Perhaps it is due to a lot of projects moving from closing Google Code to GitHub, but I experimented some GitHub random communication errors since last week.
In fact, this was not at web interface level, but at
command line level.
I have to repeat a simple
git push commands several times
(up to 10 times), until the communication is accepted, and the source code
change is stored on the server...
Pretty disappointing for a source code hosting service...
Thanks to god,
git is a distributed source code management system,
so I can keep the commits on my side until their server is up...
Self hosting with our little
fossil tool, in addition to using public hosting sites as mirror, sounded
like the right approach.
By experiment, I do not trust outside services for storing my most precious data, even more if the data - and the hosting service - are free.
Using fossil on our web server is free, fast, safe, and in fact, full of features.
