SFML GitHub Organization
« on: May 01, 2015, 04:01:17 am »
Those who closely follow SFML's activity on GitHub might already have noticed, that we have moved SFML, CSFML, SFML.Net and SFML-Game-Development-Book from Laurent's GitHub account to our new SFML GitHub Organization.

Having our own GitHub organization enables us to manage the repositories easier. We're no longer dependent on Laurent to enable this hook or change that setting for the repository, but can now have selected team members for such tasks. Additionally we can better handle permissions to the repositories, so some get read-only, some get push access and some also administrative access. You can find more information about GitHub organizations here.

For you personally the only relevant change is a new URLs for the repository, but don't panic now, because GitHub is smart enough to keep redirecting the old URLs to the new URLs. However it's advised to update the URLs whenever you can, especially if it's some only resource, because these might show up on Google and alike.

Here are the new URLs:

On top of all of this the organization provides now a centralized place for the community.
If you have an SFML binding and wish to put it under the organization as well, don't hesitate to contact us. You'll of course keep the full administrative access to it.

I didn't know it was possible to move a repo to an organization!

I guess that doesn't change much for us, but I can see how this changes things for you!

I didn't know it at first either, but it only makes sense, since most projects out there start as a pet project of someone and if interesting enough grow into something bigger.

Yep, makes things a lot more flexible for us.

For most users, as eXpl0it3r just said, there's nothing to do. It will just work.

For forks, however, you need to fix the upstream url.

GitHub doc explains how to do that but basically it should something as simple as
git remote set-url upstream https://github.com/SFML/SFML.git
