Earlier today, Google announced
we will be turning down Google Code Project Hosting. The service started
in 2006 with the goal of providing a scalable and reliable way of
hosting open source projects. Since that time, millions of people have
contributed to open source projects hosted on the site.
But a lot has changed since 2006. In the past nine years, many other
options for hosting open source projects have popped up, along with
vibrant communities of developers. It’s time to recognize that Google
Code’s mission to provide open source projects a home has been
accomplished by others, such as GitHub and Bitbucket.
We will be shutting down Google Code over the coming months. Starting
today, the site will no longer accept new projects, but will remain
functionally unchanged until August 2015. After that, project data will
be read-only. Early next year, the site will shut down, but project data
will be available for download in an archive format.
As the owner of the following projects, you have several options for
migrating your data.
The simplest option would be to use the Google Code Exporter
a new tool that will allow you to export your projects directly to
GitHub. Alternatively, we have documentation
on how to migrate to other services — GitHub, Bitbucket, and SourceForge

Did fedorahosted ever look like it could happen? I could move the repo
to github or I could finish moving it to my student bitbucket account
https://bitbucket.org/tux_peng/lincity-ng, do you have an opinion?
