VFPX is Moving

Microsoft recently announced they are shutting down CodePlex. Since CodePlex is the home of VFPX, the open source site for add-on projects for Visual FoxPro, VFPX has to move. The VFPX administrators (Rick Schummer, Craig Boyd, Jim Nelson, and I) started planning the move as soon as we saw the announcement. We don't have a lot of details yet, but we'll be moving all VFPX projects to GitHub. One thing that'll change is the structure: each project will have its own repository rather than all projects being in one place, which is the way modern open source projects are managed. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.

You'll want to set up an organization (VFPX) and then have all projects under the organization. The org then shows all the child projects.

That's what I started doing. The only issue is that some projects are going to end up being their own repositories (some project managers have already started doing that), so I'm going to use GitHub Pages to display the projects, both those under the organization and those that are separate.
