An anonymous reader writes GitHub has officially won. Google has announced that Google Code project creation has been disabled today, with the ultimate plan to kill off the service next year. On August 24, 2015, the project hosting service will be set to read-only. This means you will still be able to checkout/view project source, issues, and wikis, but nobody will be able to make changes or new commits. On January 25, 2016, Google Code will be shut down. Google says you will be able to download tarballs of project source, issues, and wikis "throughout the rest of 2016." After that, Google Code will be gone for good.

Google has announcedthat the Google Code repository is shutting down. "As developersmigrated away from Google Code, a growing share of the remaining projectswere spam or abuse. Lately, the administrative load has consisted almostexclusively of abuse management. After profiling non-abusive activity onGoogle Code, it has become clear to us that the service simply isn’t neededanymore." New project creation has been stopped already; the finalpulling of the plug will be in January 2016.
