Hey guys,

sorry for the late reply, this kind of got buried in my inbox so
only now I noticed the thread on the ML archives. Nevertheless:

My Git mirror on Bitbucket still keeps the repo in sync:


Originally based on the Gitorious repo, it has been tracking
Context development for a year or so by now. As a feature over
Marius’s approach it keeps the beta and current in separate
branches and will also pull from the Garden just in case:


I’ve been relying on the mirror as my primary source for change
notifications and diffs of the Context source for some time now.

For those interested in setting up a mirror themselves I can
provide the source of the bot. There’s some docs but I took some
shortcuts like hard-coding paths and SSH stuff so it might take
a little effort to get it up to full speed. OTOH doesn’t appear
to be unreliable and should continue working as long as the
Pragma website can be scraped in the same fashion ;)
