Google has announced the end of its project hosting service.

As developers migrated away from Google Code, a growing share of the remaining projects were spam or abuse. Lately, the administrative load has consisted almost exclusively of abuse management. After profiling non-abusive activity on Google Code, it has become clear to us that the service simply isn’t needed anymore.

New project creation is already disabled on March 12. On August 24 the site will go read-only, to be completely shut down by Janury 25, 2016. Project data is promised to be available as tarball download throughout 2016.

JK. I tried it when I tried out their google cloud service, but I'm a slave the the 'hub. Also, from the tonnes of comments, this did not have much of an impact.
