Google Code allows people to commit their code into either a Subversion (SVN), Git or Mercurial repository. It has a downloads section for people to upload their software packages (with a quota limit of 4GB, can be increased upon request) and also a wiki for projects to document their work at. There is also an issue tracker to track bugs in the project's software.
Closing on 25th January, 2016.
Archiving source code repositories is rather easy (and incremental). Just clone the git/hg repository, or checkout SVN repo. For SVN, make sure that you checkout all branches, not just trunk.
Archiving bugtrackers and the other stuff will be a bit harder.
A tool to export a repository to GitHub is available.
Some seeds for site discovery:
- Underway: Scrape Google Code Search
- Google Code search results can be grabbed in packs of 100, just add "&num=100" to the end of the URL.
- Phase 1. Quick grep says 114,262 projects, plus 71,972 labels for further searching.
- URLs from ArchiveTeam IRC logs
- List scraped from MediaWiki wikis
- List from FlossMole's data (sorted from a possibly-incomplete survey in November 2012: http://flossdata.syr.edu/data/gc/)
- Links from Open Directory Project
- TODO: Scrape Google Search
- TODO: Scrape Bing
- TODO: Scrape Twitter
- TODO: Scrape the Common Crawl Index
- FlossMole provides a set of tools to spider projects from GC
