Final project upgrades push starts April 22nd

As you’re no doubt already aware, we’re in the process of upgrading projects to our new developer platform. The new platform is named Allura, and is in incubation at the Apache Software Foundation.

In recent weeks, we’ve been upgrading projects that have been inactive for a while. Now, it’s time to start upgrading everyone else. As you can no doubt understand, we’re anxious to complete this process so we can spend less time maintaining the old platform, and more time improving the new one. However, we also want to be sure that you have plenty of time to check out the new platform and have your concerns, if any, addressed.

We’re going to start upgrading active projects starting on Monday, April 22, starting with the longest-inactive and moving forward. Since each upgrade takes a different amount of time, depending on the size of the repositories, mailing list archives, and so on, we can’t tell for sure when we’ll get to your project.

If you’re ready to go ahead and upgrade your project now, or to read more what’s involved in the upgrade, you can do that at http://sf.net/p/upgrade/

If you have a specific concern about the upgrade, or need to delay the upgrade of your project, due to a release or other project activity, please get in touch NOW, at communityteam@sourceforge.net so that we can work something out.

It's a shame, you even don't have own comments now and this form even breaks clipboard content...



I've already written questions about your allura, there are some features that are heavily used in the tracker of projects LXDE and PCManFM but are still missed in new look so migration to allura will break our trackers completely. I've written about them in https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/site-support/873/ and I see no change on them still. Also I would like to keep my project FoxEye out of migration as well because none of inconveniences of your git browser mentioned in https://sourceforge.net/p/forge/site-support/524/ were addressed and that makes new git browser near unusable in our development process (it's about beforementioned LXDE as well). If you has no intention to make it more usable then let us know, please, so we can leave sourceforge and migrate to more friendly platform. Thank you.

We (OpenCSW project "gar") are also relying a lot on Trac and the code integration. Would you mind adding us to the delay list until the integration issue is solved so we don't get upgraded with cold feed?

That's nice.  Where's the documentation that describes what's being changed, and what the new procedures are?

I have raised the Tickes #3470 about the use of Markdown tags in Allura tickets and forums. This garbles most code snippets that are posted and is unacceptable. I showed something as simple as ab*cd*4 (three values multiplied) is turned into something completely different.

What about the hosted apps retirement and migration progress to project web? We are using phpBB and Trac. If we (or you) upgrade now to Allura we loose connection to Trac SVN but we also cant move Trac to Project web because the migration progress to Project Web is since ages on "In progress". The same for phpBB.

 @GSN Team The Trac instance will stay for now. It is still our plan to retire the Hosted Apps platform, but firm dates have not been set on that, and we will have migration information available prior to taking that step.

I presume you're talking about hsqldb, and I've added it to the delay list.

Thomas, what project are you talking about here?

I wholeheartedly second this comment.  Same issues for our project, but only Trac, not phpBB.

The project website url does not change.
