CCPForge outage 16/17 February 2013
Due to a power shutdown for work in the machine room hosting the CCPForge server on 16/17 February 2013 we have to shut down CCPForge.
The shutdown will start at 1600 (GMT) on Friday 15th February and, if everything goes to plan, CCPForge will restart at 0830 (GMT) on Monday 18th.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

CCPForge unavailable Tuesday 19/06/12
Work is taking place tomorrow (Tuesday 19/06/12) to replace a router at the Rutherford Appleton Labratory site (home of CCPForge). This will mean a loss of access to CCPForge.
The work will start at 08:00 and the Lab networking team hope to finish by 10:00. If a problem arises and there is a guaranteed resolution in sight, work will go on until 12:00.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

CCPForge welcomes CCPI
The recently funded new CCP for tomographic imaging software (CCPI) has joined CCPForge.
They are planning to make use of the source code control systems offered by CCPForge to facilitate collaboration on their software development between groups at the University of Manchester and the University of Bath.
Saving Scientific Software using CCPForge
The use of CCPForge has been highlighted in an blog post (http://software.ac.uk/blog/2011-10-13-save-scientific-legacy-code) for the UK's Software Sustainability Institute.
Describing the work on a "molecular physics" code the post identified the use of Subversion to control the source code, and, more importantly, the collaboration between "members of the development team and the software’s users" as particular strengths of CCPForge.
Here's hoping for more... (see more)
