Official repositories for all ndnSIM-related code is now moved under umbrella of named-data-ndnSIM organization on GitHub.

This change needs to get reflected in the documentation and CI scripts.

How about renaming the organization to just 'ndnSIM', if it's not taken?


Updated by Alex Afanasyev about 6 years ago

I would like to keep strong association with named-data organization.

I assume this means that all developers/users have to adapt their repositories and dependencies to the new links?

Also, with these new names in place, will there be a system that tells me which versions of ndn-cxx/NFD/ndnSIM are compatible (e.g., if ndn-cxx gets updated).
Or can I assume that IF it is under this new repository name, it will always be consistent and compatible?

I will keep mirrors of repositories in old locations.

The new locations are specifically made for submodule integration of ndn-cxx and NFD into ndnSIM. So, this would significantly simplify issue with version compatibility, as there will be no moving parts unless there is an explicit update of ndnSIM.

I will try to keep documentation of what is the current base version of NFD/ndn-cxx as part of commit log and will create a changelog for that.
