    As you may know, Google Code is shutting down at the end of this year. Google Code also seems to house most of the most recent and best Wii modding tools and apps. While some notable apps like Nintendont have made the switch to GitHub (as is suggested by Google), many other vital tools (like USBLoader GX) haven't.

    Anyone can export projects from Google Code to GitHub, so older, unmaintained projects could be exported by anyone.

    So I'm trying to drum up interest in rescuing the Wii homebrew scene from Google Code's impending doom. Does anyone have suggestions on how best to approach this?

    I have a similar thing going for ROM hacking tools, it is not quite as troubling there though.

    For the most part it looks like you get to do it yourself. You might end up unintentionally creating a fork (in the traditional sense of the word rather than git parlance) but better than than lost source I guess.

    Maybe search GBAtemp, Wiibrew, etc. for Google Code links, and set up a program to automatically export them to GitHub?
