PyOpenGL is Offline (DMCA takedown notice...)

For those asking, yes, PyOpenGL has disappeared from SourceForge. Gentleman sent a DMCA notice thinking that gle32.dll was his, it is actually just a compiled version of the (BSD licensed) GLE library for Win32. I've sent in a DMCA Notification Response, and the gentleman who issued the initial request has asked for them to rescind it. Hopefully the project will come back online sometime soon-ish.

    Wow. That's really bad.<br />
    <br />
    Time to move it somewhere else?

    Would have happened with any ISP in the USA, DMCA is pretty widespread down there. It's back up now, btw.

    cvs is down quite a lot on sf (like now). Also the website is often really slow.<br />
    <br />
    I could ask the lovely people at who do a wonderful job of hosting ? Maybe just moving to their svn, and website hosting to start with?<br />

    I'd personally find it easier to stay on SF, given that almost everything else I develop is on SF already.
