The webpages work as expected. New commits to the CVS repository also automatically update the web pages.

The problem is solved now. Thanks again for your support.

The homepage redirects to a page in Open VSX Registry where a binary release of the project is hosted.

Both server and client side of Open VSX Registry is free (under Eclipse Public License 2.0), but its JavaScript code does not conform to LibreJS' requirements for free JavaScript. I believe it's okay to use that site (as long as it is still free).

In fact, users don't have to visit any website to download a release of this project. They can do that directly on a supported code editor (such as VSCodium).

So there's no need to write another homepage for that purpose. Now I'm only using nongnu.org for hosting the user manual.

Hello,

Apologies for the delay.  I just set up the CVS hook for your
vscode-texinfo project and triggered a manual sync.  Things should be
in good shape now.  I'd appreciate it if you would confirm things on
your end as well.

P.S. I noticed that the page it redirects to shows up blank when using
the LibreJS add-on for firefox-based browsers such as GNU IceCat, or
when loading JavaScript is disabled.  It would be a good idea to offer
a simple site for the project on nongnu.org that works without
requiring the use of (potentially nonfree) JavaScript by the user.

Hello Savannah admins:

It's been a while since this support ticket was posted.

Now the project in question (vscode-texinfo) is ready for its v0.2.0 release.
However, its user manual has to wait until the webpage problem is solved.

I understand that you may be busy at the moment, but it's much appreciated
that the problem can be solved soon.

Hello Savannah admins:

After making the first commit to the CVS webpages repo of project vscode-texinfo,
it doesn't appear in the web pages.

I believe it's related to the issues as described in #110426,
#110401 and #110161. It seems that the problem
still exists for new peoject, where a manual fix is required.

Thanks for your support.
