digitalmars.D - Dsource down?

Dsource has been up and down over the last hour or two, and now it seems 
to have settled in the down position.

"could not translate host name "localhost" to address: Name or service 
not known"

Before it collapsed, I also noticed that the link to download the code 
as a zipfile, e.g. on

http://www.dsource.org/projects/bindings/browser/trunk/win32/

has vanished without a trace.  I wanted to update my working copy last 
night, but couldn't do it in my normal way.

It's currently working for me.

Stewart, Sorry for the blips in service. I am still trying to track down a problem in the code that runs the site. It is leaking db connections and I am pulling my hair out trying to find it. As for the "download as a zip" - I'm not sure where that went, probably gone in an upgrade to Trac. Hopefully soon, I will be implementing a repos snapshot capability that will keep the nightly repos in zips or tarballs for download. IIRC, you have issues with your school's proxy and WebDAV / SVN functionality? BA

Any idea why somebody might have felt that removing this feature would be an upgrade? It amazes me what lengths some people will go to to cut down on features in the name of upgrade. Sometimes there's the excuse of reducing bloat. But I can't believe that support for the view-source pseudoprotocol can be such bloat that M$ has decided to get rid of it.

Something like that. But now that I've finished my PhD and my personal workstation's taken away, I'm now relying on the lab machines. I guess I should see if I can get it working here.... Stewart.

Ignoring your tirade for the moment, I've figured out the Download as Zip Archive issue. Trac devs decided to give finer-grained control over what dirs/files can be downloaded, and made the entire feature a configurable option in the environment's .ini file. Bindings Trac env was created before this, so the option needed to be added after the upgrade. So, for bindings, I've enabled trunk/* which will show the Zip Archive download link in each of the sub-folders, such as your interest, win32. hth, BA
