    (Have done a search on this, but can't seem to find anything related sorry!)

    As we probably all know by now, Googlecode is being taken down for whatever reason, I haven't looked deep into it but yeahh, it's going bye bye.

    So that leaves me with a question: Is there a fallback for it?

    By that I mean are the documents, sources, FAQs etc going to be held somewhere else to access, or will they just disappear...? I can't see that being the case, since people still work on Wii Homebrew apps to this day but so far I haven't thought of a place they'll be hosted otherwise.

    Thanks all.

    Makes me think. What if there is no people working on a project. Who's gonna upload all the source code and everythinng to github or somewhere else??

    So I guess all the projects that are still running will move to Github while all the dead ones will need to be re-uploaded by someone else otherwise they will be gone for good.

    Yeah, the dead ones will have to be mirrored by a non-official source, I would guess

    woa....

    anyone knows the reason? i mean.. there are toons of code and cool stuff on googlecode pages...
    anyone knows if they will still provide downloads but no new content after they close it?
    specially with android.. there should be lots of open source apps hosten on google code... and they are closing it :(

    also this should be gbatemp news....

    I think it was a little while back. They're going to close everything off for new entries in August or September or something like that and everything will be wiped from the servers in 2016. There is an "export to GitHub" button, though

    Official email I received from Google two months ago:
    Take a look at the part that says "project data will be available for download in an archive format".

    yeah i seen it.. just read news the excuse is "spam abuse" according to a news website..

    which is plain dumb.. instead of the bullshit closure they could close new submissions and require a small payment for use it..
    also, there are ways to deal with spam..
