What happen to the existing Slicer GitHub repository ?

Between 2011 and March 2020, Slicer sources were maintained in a SVN repository automatically mirrored on GitHub. To speedup time required to checkout Slicer source code, large data files have been removed from the Slicer commit history.

To ensure existing references to both Git SHA and Pull Requests are reachable, the mirrored GitHub repository has been renamed to https://github.com/Slicer/SlicerGitSVNArchive

What is SlicerGitSVNArchive repository ?

This corresponds to the original GitHub repository that was a mirror of the Slicer SVN authoritative repository. The former Slicer/Slicer repository was renamed into Slicer/SlicerGitSVNArchive

What happen to SVN repository ?

Until September 2020, SVN server http://svn.slicer.org hosting the Dart, NAMICSandBox, Slicer3, Slicer3-lib-mirrors and Slicer4 repositories will remain available.

The web server http://viewvc.slicer.org/ will be converted into a static html website.

What happen to Slicer Mantis issue tracker ?

Mantis issue tracker has been retired and new issues should be created here: https://github.com/Slicer/Slicer/issues

For every mantis issues, a GitHub issue has been created with a link to the retired mantis tracker.

To support this, the following redirections have been established:

Slicer4 project has been disabled in Mantis. This means that no issues will be visible on the main page and that user will not be able to create issues in mantis.
