Hi people,

I apologize for the delay in sending this notice, I completely forgot…

On Wednesday the alioth.d.o admin, as planned[0], shut down the project
websites, including our reproducible.alioth.debian.org.

We were using that space also to host our experimental toolchain

Not having a particularly good idea on where to move it and also having
received no suggestions on IRC, I moved them to jenkins as well.  This
means that from now on pretty much only me and Holger will be able to
upload packages there.  I don't forsee this as a problem in the short
term, as I was pretty much the only one keeping up with the updates of
our patched gcc and dpkg.  In the long term we should get rid of those
as well, so…[2].  In case you would like to upload new packages, just
get in touch with me.

The new URL for the repository is
It's signed by the same key used previously, so apart from the changing
the URL (and maybe dealing with the HTTPS-only repo[3]) everything
should just work.

We also need somebody to update the wiki page[1], which has been
outdated for a while now…

[2] On a related note, we really need somebody to figure what are the
    next steps on BUILD_PATH_PREFIX_MAP and gcc, etc.
