transition plan for apt-listbugs onto Debian infrastructure: temporarily on merkel.debian.org, then move over to bugs.debian.org


This mail is to hopefully notify all the affected parties on a plan to
move apt-listbugs server infrastructure to merkel.debian.org, then to

The transition plan is as follows:

1. Move over to merkel.debian.org for the time being, with the upload
   of apt-listbugs 0.0.53

2. When index.*.db is generated on bugs.debian.org and is available
   from HTTP serving[1], and SOAP support is deployed to
   bugs.debian.org[2], and SOAP support is integrated into
   apt-listbugs, move over to bugs.debian.org.

   If SOAP implementation doesn't work (due to load, or some other
   problems), the backup plan is to export db-h directory via HTTP on

3. When the infrastructure is ready for bugs.debian.org public
   mirroring, create bugs.debian.org mirrors

The current situation with apt-listbugs:

1. hosted on osdn.debian.or.jp (a private BTS server maintained by
   Debian JP Project), which I do not have a shell access to right

2. BTS mirroring has been sporadic due to some mirroring problems, and
   apt-listbugs was using old BTS information for some time (since
   April/May timeframe, and also since 2005).

3. apt-listbugs has been unmaintained for a long time, it's a bit rusty.
