...which you haven't done so far (at least as far as I see).

- I created a new mailing list on SourceForge (as I already announced
here), it has 39 members by now..
- I created a duplicate of the archive of this mailing list.

- I created a new Wiki with the relevant content.

- I created a GitHub repository containing the history back to year
2000. There have already been quite some new commits. Greg King has
already made significant contributions to this repository and others
are about to do so too.

- I decided to simplify the cc65 delivery model so there are no
snapshots nor releases. Rather users build cc65 on their own based on
the source .zip from
- I give Windows users some additional help by supplying a binaries
.zip for them at


The lack of snapshots doesn't mean that cc65 isn't built
automatically. Rather the opposite: On every push to the GitHub
repository a continuous integration build runs.

Given all the above I'd consider it safe to say I did so by now.

Thanks for the offer :-)

However I decided to stick to publicly available (free) hosting
services (see above).

The only thing missing to finalize the transition of the cc65
development is the ownership of the domain.

- My intend is to have point to the content now available

- My intend is to have handled by InterNetworX (
I'm already customer there for quite some years.

- In case a transition like this should become necessary later on I
promise to offer the domain to the new development.

- In case that should be necessary for you to agree I'm fine with
adding credits as you see fit and/or add a link to or create a mirror of the files
in that directory and add a link to it.

Thanks in advance for your consideration,
To unsubscribe from the list send mail to with
the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
