Eclipse.org Infrastructure Migration
I am very pleased to announce that we are making progress towards migrating
the eclipse.org website to a new location managed directly by the Eclipse
Foundation. We want to make sure that everyone is aware of the key dates,
because there could be impacts on the site's availability as we move.
We currently do not have firm projections for downtime. We will provide
advance notice of any outages on our home page.
We are planning on moving in two phases. The first move will relocate
our download servers. This will also allow us to test the new hosting
site and its bandwidth. It also will allow for the least impact on the
community, because downloads will continue to be available from our mirrors.
In the second phase we will move the remaining servers, including our
HTML content, mailing lists, newsgroups, CVS and Bugzilla.
Please read the FAQ for more
information. Other questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Saturday, October 16, 2004 - move download servers
Saturday, October 30, 2004 - move all remaining servers
I am also very happy to announce the the Eclipse Foundation has hired
a full-time system administrator. Denis Roy joined us on October 1st.
He will be assuming responsibility for firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to express a great deal of gratitude to IBM for hosting the
eclipse.org site to this point. And in particular, I would like to recognize
the efforts of the IBM infrastructure team which has supported the site
to date. They have done a truly excellent job.
