All good things, as they say, come to an end. This unfortunately also includes my free SVN hosting service, svn.graffen.dk, that has been running almost non-stop since some time in 2006.

I started svn.graffen.dk as a free hosting service, mostly because no others really existed at the time, and I needed a place to host my own private repositories. It was one of the first services I put online and has by far been the most popular (with more than 1000 registered users, of which about 300 have used it within the past 3 months).

But running a server costs money, bandwidth and time and since I myself have moved on to use other version control systems and haven't used my own service for quite some time, I have decided that it is time to put it to rest. I simply don't have the time or resources to keep it alive any more. 

So that's it. I'll be shutting down the server in about a week's time (end of next week) so if you have anything important on there, please make sure you get it off and put it somewhere else. I can recommend switching to some of the other awesome free services out there, like BitBucket or GitHub. SubVersion is an inferior VCS nowadays anyway ;-)

I'd like to thank you all for using my service - it's been fun watching something I built for fun actually be used by quite a number of people.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
