-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
after several other Debian developers convinced me that a ShortURL service,
which is under control of a Debian Developer (and if its useful and used
regularly running on DSA-administrated Hardware) would be useful for them, I've
spent some time to write the necessary code for it.
So I'm happy to announce the public beta test of http://deb.li (also available
under http://go.debian.net)! Please note that neither the content of the pages
nor the CSS is finished...
As this should not become just another random, spammer-attracting ShortURL
service, I will not provide a web based form to add new URLs. Instead new URLs
have to be added via a simple JSON-RPC based interface. Other ways to add new
URLs will be added on request (or by sending patches
), at least an
email-gateway similar to db.debian.org is planned.
The small piece of documentation which exists so far is available at
And if you want to give it a try now, log into alioth.debian.org and have a look
into /var/lib/gforge/chroot/home/users/bzed/godebian-client - the usage is
documented in the README file and should be pretty straight forward.
Comments, bugreports and patches are welcome!
Hope its useful!
