I asked the question Which public hosting sites for darcs projects are there? (Like Gitorious for Git.), but it got deleted a while ago.

Let me rephrase it as:

I want to put my darcs project onto a public hosting service (like Gitorious). Can I do this, and how/where?

Then it isn't directly asking for a list, so it doesn't have the form that is strictly banned here.

  • then why don't you edit it? Also, the problem with these types of questions is that there are so many link-only answers - right now all 4 answers on that are link-only.

  • @Doorknob I thought it was locked. Ok, I'll try to edit it. Thanks! No, I can't edit it. Jun 17 '13 at 10:40

    You can't? You should be able to. What does it say when you try to edit it? (If you can't then I can edit it for you)

  • @Doorknob "edit" is greyed-out. And when I click it, nothing happens. Thanks for suggesting your help! But I'm not sure you should bother youself with this: as we can see, we see that such a rephrasing won't help this question survive. Anyway, all this useful information about public darcs hosting is available at darcs.net/Hosting (but I found that page much later than I asked the question). If I feel like copying something from the deleted question and its answers to the page at darcs.net and its duscussion page, I'll do that. Jun 18 '13 at 9:59

    Why not move this to meta.stackoverflow.com where this should belong? Jun 1 '14 at 16:04

Your rephrasing is no different than the original question.

It's not asking for lists that is "banned"; asking questions to which there is no minimally finite set of answers are not encouraged because there is not set of answers that will satisfy everyone.

Stack Overflow is not here to answer every possible programming question. We're here to answer what can be answered and agreed upon by the community. We're here to give you the best (hopefully) answer to your programming problem, not 10 different libraries that might possibly be of use to you. If your question has many possible answers the chances are that it's not on topic on the entire Stack Exchange network.
