    * [http://sf.net/ SourceForge] CVS has been having problems since late March, when anonymous CVS dropped out of sync with the private repositories. In mid-may the site moved from having one CVS server for everything, to having a separate hostname for every project's repository. For Gump, this means that every sourceforge-hosted project needs to have their own repository file and the existing builds need to be completely purged. Currently only a few projects have been migrated due to their ubiquitousness (JUnit) or due to the effort of the project members themselves. Obviously, only project members who are also apache committers can do this unaidedely, which pushes more work onto the gump team.     * [[http://sf.net/|SourceForge]] CVS has been having problems since late March, when anonymous CVS dropped out of sync with the private repositories.

Infrastructure:

  • We are in the process of giving back gump.osuosl.org since we simply lack the people to take care of it.

Technical:

  • Our biggest problem right now is the lack of support for and by Maven 2 which needs to get addressed if we don't want to see more Java projects become unbuildable.

Until a full migration takes place, sourceforge-hosted projects will be built using a source snapshot of early May. This is going to lead to problems the longer the migration is put off.

Other:

  • still all Apache committers have access to metadata in svn.
  • no releases.
