For MKCL I have my main Git repository on github.com and I run a clone of
it on common-lisp.net as a mirror.
The MKCL page on common-lisp.net mentions that mirror repository and has a
link to browse it through gitweb
(I like the look of gitweb better than the github equivalent, that is
probably the only advantage of having
a repository on common-lisp.net beside some level of redundancy.)
There used to be a cron job on common-lisp.net that would synchronize
automatically the local mirror
repository against its "origin" every 4 hours if setup right but that has
been broken since April 23, 2013
(I presume this is a consequence the power outage crash the
around that time.)
I sent an email to this list on that very subject last May 23 (I copied it
here below) but it has been
ignored to this day. In the meantime I worked/hacked out a private version
of the cron script and
I get my local repository synchronized with it every now and then,
triggering it manually.
Updating of GIT repositories mirrored on common-lisp.net is broken

For projects that mirror their GIT repositories on
common-lisp.net it looks very much like the automatic
(cron based) updating has been broken since last April, 23.
I think the problem comes from a stale lock file named
cron.root.update-git-mirrors.run in directory /custom/run.
Could someone with root access remove that stale lock
and assure that the updating script can then run properly?
