So I assume this is a +1 from you too? (we should have some more formal decission making process. Perhaps something in the line of https://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/rfc1_pmc)
Yes, you already effectively had a +1 from me.
OK, so this is now official. We're on gitlab!

I was thinking to just decomission the CVS repository (have to find out how to do that exctly), or rename it to some libtiff_historical name. That way, people won't pull from a deprecated repo
The repository itself does contain some other useful historical things besides libtiff such as a version of libjpeg which supports multiple depths in the same build. It would be wrong to just turn off the server.
I wasn't thinking to the server, but just the repository. This is now done. The old CVS repo is now archived for historical purposes at: CVSROOT=:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/maptools/cvsroot cvs checkout libtiff_historical_now_moved_to_gitlab Please don't commit anything in there.
http://libtiff.maptools.org/ is now refreshed from gitlab (and you can see it reflects now the new location for source code of this first true git commit: https://gitlab.com/libtiff/libtiff/commit/b1374e94ace05114c28399beccbc30f94d619991)
