Deprecation of the git:// protocol on GitHub
- 01 March 2022
- Cuenca, Ecuador
Last year, GitHub announced the deprecation of the unsecured Git protocol due to security reasons. This change will be made permanent on March 15, 2022.
At Read the Docs we found around 900 projects using a Git protocol URL
git://github.com/user/project) to clone their projects.
To save time for our users, we have migrated those to use the HTTPS cloning URL instead
Incoming Webhook Deprecations
- 21 January 2019
- Portland, Oregon
In the coming weeks and months, Read the Docs will be moving some projects away from our legacy incoming webhooks, towards our per-project webhook integrations.
Our legacy incoming webhooks were our first attempt at allowing providers like GitHub to automatically trigger builds on for projects on Read the Docs. These webhooks lacked a number of security features, and so, about two years ago, we replaced these with per-project webhook integrations instead. We added a number of features to per-project webhook integrations at the time, and we stopped new projects from using the old incoming webhooks.
