All: we just fixed the svn issue that was causing the "Can't find a temporary directory" errors.
digal: perhaps that was related to the issue you were seeing as well? I just tried an http:// checkout and it worked just fine for me.
7 months ago on Various SourceForge services down - UPDATE, all services restored
If the access URL for the repository starts with "projectname.scm.sourceforge.net" it's a on the classic system. eg. https://scummvm.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/scummvm
If the URL for the repo starts with "code.scm.sf.net" (or "code.scm.sourceforge.net"), then it's on the new SourceForge platform. eg. git://git.code.sf.net/p/allura/git
For those who missed it, we sent an email out today with some clarification and updates. The info in the email can also be found here: https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/community-docs/Hosted%20Apps%20Retirement/
In short, 1) We're extending the deadline, see the info page above for a more detailed timeline
2) we clarified what we mean when we say "Hosted Apps", and now have a page that lists all your Hosted Apps: http://sourceforge.net/help/hostedapps/

@bungeshea Not yet, but setting up redirects is part of the plan.
Bug is fixed, upgrades are re-enabled.

Hosted Apps specifically refers to applications which are installed to http://sourceforge.net/apps/<appname>/<projectname>/
If the URL of the tool in question does *not* match that, then it's not a Hosted App.
If you'd like to me to check on your project specifically, please let me know what project you're curious about.
We found a major bug in the forum upgrade, so we've disabled access to upgrades in the meantime.
@DaveGarratt This doesn't affect all projects, there are many where this just doesn't apply. That said, I agree it is crucial that all affected parties are aware. Our next step is that to send out emails to all the project admins with Hosted Apps enabled.

@DaveGarratt Yes, I've gotten confirmation that the team has set backups for Hosted Apps as a priority item.
Please log a support ticket for this and I'll get it passed along to the proper team: https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/newticket

We use the Short URL service quite extensively ourselves, so we're definitely going to work something out for this. The planning for just exactly how we're going to manage it isn't complete yet, I'll make sure the team working on that sees your feedback. More details when we have concrete plans for this service.
We're passing this feedback on to the team, though, I don't think we'll be able to extend this timeline, but if we are, we'll definitely update this post to reflect that.
@Robert Munteanu We do in face have plans to set-up redirects (and/or give projects the option to), though we haven't planned exactly how this is going to work. We'll keep this post updated with more detail on that as we have it.
