|The current `manpages.debian.org` service has been disabled by [[Teams/DSA]] because of performance issues. The source code is available in http://anonscm.debian.org/viewvc/ddp/man-cgi/ and was supposed to be migrated to a different host.
== New implementation ==
The current codebase is being rewritten from scratch into a package called [[https://debmans.readthedocs.io/en/latest/|Debmans]] See the [[https://debmans.readthedocs.io/en/latest/design.html|design document]] for a discussion on the implementation.
At this point, the code can extract all files from a mirror efficiently and convert them to HTML. It has not been tested on a full mirror yet, because TheAnarcat is waiting for `manpages` group access and dependencies install (`setuptools` from backports and/or `python-click`, `python-apt` and `python-debian`). See the [[https://debmans.readthedocs.io/en/latest/todo.html|TODO]] file for more information about the current status of the project and limitations.
For Debian maintainers not wishing to operate on the [[https://gitlab.com/anarcat/debmans|Gitlab platform]], there is also a [[https://anonscm.debian.org/git/collab-maint/debmans.git|collab-maint repository]] that is synchronised with Gitlab every hour.
