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:email@example.com:/cvsroot/jikesrvm co jikesrvm
- Developer access is via ssh
only; core team members should already know this, if not contact me or
- 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
- 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 environment).
- 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
- 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.
