The system is down. Sorry.
CIA.vc, the open source "version control informant", was a source code commit notification service. It helped people collaborate more efficiently on open source projects, by broadcasting code changes over Internet Relay Chat.
This project first went online back in 2003, when the internet was a very different place. Since then, IRC and Subversion have taken a back seat to Twitter and Github. For many people, the service offered by CIA would be just as relevant today as it was when the site first went live; but for myself as well as many former and potential supporters of the project, this sort of centralized fast-paced development just isn't as compelling. Technology moves on, and I've personally moved on.
