After a snag with gitolite's default umask of 0077 and way too
much time spent figuring out that it was the problem (I'm going
to blame the hour - after all, it's 0400 localtime), we are
happy to announce a partial migration of SBo services to our
new machine.

git://slackbuilds.org/ is now git://git.slackbuilds.org/

https://slackbuilds.org/cgit/ is now https://git.slackbuilds.org/

The cgit side should be a completely seamless transition; you 
don't *have* to do anything at all. Thanks to some mod_rewrite
magic on the existing (and the soon to be migrated) website, 
the old cgit/ links will continue to work indefinitely.

However, for git, you'll have to make a slight edit to your
config. For our repos you have cloned already, you can either
edit the .git/config to fix the url or you can use git itself:
  git remote set-url origin git://git.slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds.git

Those of you with push rights, the process is similar, and we
trust that you can figure it out given the above information.

All that said, it's still possible to revert this if it becomes
absolutely necessary, so please try to find problems with it
and let us know if you do.
