How to reproduce

go to and look for link to "youtubefilters" repository

Observed behaviour

No link to however there is a publicly accessible Mercurial repository at that URL.

This likely affects other repositories as well - for example, malwaredomains repo was seemingly moved but only the old location is linked.

Expected behaviour

See a "youtubefilters" link that can be clicked to access it, same as for e.g. ruadlist

Replying to greiner:

@arthur @matze Any idea where that repository is located?

Since they seem to be quite busy, I tried to find out:

    config = get_config()
    section = 'subscriptionDownloads'
    repository = config.get(section, 'malwaredomains_repository')

def get_config():
      Returns parsed configuration file (SafeConfigParser instance). File paths
      that will be checked: ~/.sitescripts, ~/sitescripts.ini, /etc/sitescripts,

    paths = []

    # Allow SITESCRIPTS_CONFIG variable to override config path
    if 'SITESCRIPTS_CONFIG' in os.environ:

But I don't know where to look for the "sitescripts.ini" in use (or if it's even published)...

Most of the Mercurial server setup is not automated anywhere, but done manually. Some repositories just have never been configured to be included with the index, like the youtubefilters one --

Regarding malwaredomains, however, please refer to #392.
