It took longer than expected, but we are finally ready to move all arch and subversion repositories to a new server. This will take place on December 31st. That means that on that day it will not be possible to commit to arch or svn repositories and giving people no excuse not to visit their friends and famility to celebrate the end of the year (for those living on a Gregorian calendar). There are a few notable changes in the new server: * costa has its own account database, so changed made in the Alioth web interface will automatically be applied to costa. I will try to do that at least every other day until Alioth moves as well. * each user no longer has his own UNIX group but is put in the standard users group. * ViewCVS has been replaced with WebSVN. * we now use the fsfs backend for subversion. This means that we should no longer suffer from stuck locks, hanging processes or incorrect ACLs. * local paths are slightly different: instead of /org we now use /srv. This should not be visible if you properly use the /arch and /svn symbolic links. * if you used haydn.debian.org instead of arch.debian.org or svn.debian.org as hostname you will have to change that locally. Summarizing: * December 31: commiting to arch and svn repositories not possible * January 1: arch and svn reinstated on new server Wichert. -- Wichert Akkerman <email@example.com> It is simple to make things. http://www.wiggy.net/ It is hard to make things simple.
