Subject: Haxx will stop hosting most Rockbox services after 2020

Haxx will stop hosting most Rockbox services after 2020

Hi friends,

As mentioned in the subject, the Haxx team (me, Björn, Linus and Kjell) will
stop hosting most Rockbox related services on January 1st 2021. It should give
everyone plenty of time to find new places and alternatives for everything
that needs to survive.

None of us are still involved in the project since years and we've grown a
little bored of running the services and keeping things up for a project we
don't participate in anymore. Also, we feel that these sorts of project
related chores are much better dealt with by people who actually still care
for and nurture the project. Not by old ex-rockboxers like us.

I've created an initial wiki page (on github no less) with more specific
information about what services that will stop and the few that won't.

We can help moving and preparing things as long as the effort is reasonable on
our behalf. I don't think anyone of us have any opinions about where or how
things transition.

We most probably won't participate on this mailing list (I'll hang around for
a few days or a week now but then I'll vanish again), but you should contact
us directly if you have questions or need our assistance for any of this.

My advice: start discussing and preparing this transition as soon as possible
so that there's a chance for an overlapping period as long as possible.
