Gitorious Closedown

The not-super-great-open-source code hosting system Gitorious has been acquired and shut down by the much-better-and-open-source code hosting system GitLab. This is an overall net win for humanity but does have a few downsides.

A few years ago Intel and Nokia selected Gitorious to host the source code for their MeeGo Operating System. With the upcoming shutdown, that code was about to go offline. Since I have a sentimental attachment to MeeGo I've copied the repos for the MeeGo Netbook UX (source code) and MeeGo Tablet UX (source code) to GitHub.

Both of these projects are totally abandoned so don't expect Pull Requests to be merged or issues to be looked at, but it would be a shame if this just disappeared into a black pit of indifference.
