We're happy to announce that our migration to sourceforge is now complete.
Our new home page is http://jikesrvm.sourceforge.net/ and the project
itself is found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/jikesrvm. At a high
level, most things remain the same at our new home. However there are
some differences that are worth mentioning.
Anonymous cvs access is still via pserver, but with a different -d
argument:; to get the system do cvs -d
:pserver:anonymous@...:/cvsroot/jikesrvm co jikesrvm
Developer access is via ssh only; core team members should already know
this, if not contact me or Steve Augart
The sourceforge cvs servers often have a higher load than the
developerworks ones did; expect things to be somewhat slower on average.
We changed the defaut to 'watch off' so checkout by developers will get rw
permission (no need for explicit cvs edit)
The 'watch CVS commits' page relied on details of the developerworks site
that are different on sourceforge. For now, that page is gone, but
something similar is likely to be online in the next couple of weeks.
The 'active CVS areas' is also removed for similar reasons. The current
plan is to not restore this unless people really find it useful (not
obvious how we can actually get this working again in the new
Please update your address books, spam filters, etc. to the new mailing
lists. The old lists will briefly forward to the new lists (starting in a
day or so and continuing through March 15th). But, please use the new
lists effectively immediately.
Legal requirements remain the same, but we are now using the patch tracker
to manage the contribution process instead of the jikesrvm-contrib mailing
list. Details on the website.
We now have separate trackers for bugs and features (Request For
Enhancements == RFE).
As part of the conversion process, all old bugs were renumbered; there is
a mapping from old to new numbers available on the website.
