View Full Version : Sourceforge is closing its website service?

I've read this in the blog of sourceforge:
and I clearly understand that sourceforge is closing its service which provides each application with a web interface, like this: http://wall-changer.sourceforge.net/

But then, I read this:
where it says:

What is changing?
We are preparing to discontinue the Hosted Apps service. We had originally slated this to happen on September 1st.
We are electing to delay this service shutdown to later in 2012Q4.
No other portion of the SourceForge offering is being discontinued.
We'll continue hosting your project, providing SCM, downloads, project web, mailing list, ticketing, forum, wiki*, and directory listing services as we do today.
Only the Hosted Apps portion of our offering is being discontinued.

So, what I want is to know whether sites like this:
http://wall-changer.sourceforge.net will remain open or not, because for a non-native speaker like me it is very difficult to understand.

I see. So, as far as I can tell, they are not deleting the sites, they are just disabling a feature which (oh, the irony) is called 'hosted apps'...

PS Thanks for the move and sorry!
