People can't get to here from defunkt/gist.

My proposal is that you move the repo, fork gist, then re-import the current code/history.

Down with abandonware!

Making it a fork of defunkt/gist would help the other way around — people would go there from here...

Not a chance.

Why would they go from something that's good to something that's buggy, incomplete, and unmaintained?

The reason I made this ticket is because a user on #github was saying the "gist" repo is unmaintained, but it's not clear which of the forks to use.

Having this one hanging on the tree with a steady little Pac-man line of commits would advertise it.

I think the best thing to do would be to spam all the bugs that are fixed in jist and not in gist:

Yeeeeah so I'm mildly inclined to just pull jist back into gist and cut a release. @ConradIrwin, how do you feel about that?

Owner

ConradIrwin commented Nov 4, 2012

@indirect: That's good by me. There are some minor differences in the command line parsing, but nothing massively different I don't think.

ConradIrwin commented Nov 4, 2012

Oh, authentication is completely different.

indirect commented Nov 4, 2012

(Honestly I would just add you and @rking to the gist repo and gem, but I don't have admin, only commit. Sorry. :|)

indirect commented Nov 4, 2012

Yeah, your authentication seems much less horrifyingly awful. FWIW.

(No worries — thanks for fixing up gist :).

@indirect since you have commit, how about a note at the top of the 'gist' README pointing to this project?

As soon as I get the chance. Medium-term, I'm going to merge jist in.
