The above link leads to a blank "Not Found" page. Is there a new system 
in place?

instead?

I found the FlySpray bug site up a few minutes ago. Thank you to 
whomever brought the site back up again!

Given our code base is on github, new issues and requests should 
certainly be created on github and so I believe our recent documentation 
updates to point new issues to github are OK.

The question I have is whether bugs.povray.org will now be available 
indefinitely and something we can continue to refer to on github or 
should we work to port the FlySpray issues over to github issues where 
the FS issues are still meaningful with the idea the FlySpray site will 
be going away?

Maybe some partial movement of only 3.7+ issues to github given the 
FlySpray site is valid for reporting 3.6 issues, where github is only 
valid for 3.7 onward?

So far there is no intention to shut down the FlySpray tracker, but the
incident shows that nobody is breaking a leg to keep it well-maintained
either; so I think we better prepare for it to disappear sooner or later
(probably with a whimper rather than a bang). There is no real point in
maintaining two issue trackers in parallel, and although the FlySpray
tracker is much more powerful, the GitHub issue tracker has already won
the race merely by sitting right there alongside the repo where
development happens anyway.

When it comes to bugs that are truly 3.6-only, I guess we won't find any
volunteers to do any more maintenance on 3.6 anyway, so why even bother.

Bugs reported for 3.6 but still valid for 3.7, now that's an entirely
different matter.

If you'd be willing to port the open FlySpray issues in a useful manner,
maybe even going the extra mile (as you tend to do) and giving them a
thorough review for relevancy, at least I for one would appreciate that.


BTW, is there an e-mail address by which you can be reached? In case
you're reluctant to disclose it publicly, please drop an e-mail to
Christoph at Lipka-Koeln, dot DE.
