Dear CIP lovers,

this week Ben H. and I agreed that we need a new repo to store the current
kernel-configs provided by Members. Since we already have several repos
related with the kernel, the right thing to do is to create a sub-project
and store them there, so we decrease entropy.

The new sub-project for CIP kernel related repositories is: https://

Moving the CIP kernel repo to this new sub-project might affect users that
are pointing to it. The planned movement date is:

* Thursday 19th April 2018 at 10:00 UTC.
Reminder: this will take place later today.

In case you can automate the change, here are the links you need to have
* The current repo URL is:
This is no longer the repo location.

* The new URL will be:
I confirm this is the new URL. Please act accordingly.

Please plan accordingly.

I have no previous experience moving such big repos on so
some downtine. In the worst scenario, please remember that you can point
Ben H. repo:

The reasons why we do not copy the repo into a new location and then
deprecate the old one, instead of going for a hard/hot move, are storage
limitations and failure rate on Gitlab when mirroring such big repos.
