Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] The end of an era: shell access.

Asking again as my question (and its workarounds for the removal of a direct SSH login) appear to have been lost in the haze of panic. :)

Will the SFTP access include rsync over SSH, or SSHFS drive mounting? I've dealt with SFTP-only filesystems at Red Hat for years, and it's much less painful when you can use rsync instead of ftp/scp, or mount an ssh volume to interact more directly with the remote filesystem.Â

(Both are MUCH easier than running scripts inside Jenkins to work around SSH and getfacl limitations, as I do today when I need to move stuff around on download.eclipse.org or archive.eclipse.org.)

Will that be allowed?

Thx,

Mat,

Count me as someone who will be VERY, VERY, VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT RESTRICTIONS!

Sorry for shouting, but it's hard for me to imagine how I can maintain the services that I provide without the access I currently have. Just as an example, I could not have developed this without such access:

 https://download.eclipse.org/oomph/archive/eclipse/index.html

I assume there must be extremely good reasons for this change of policy, no doubt related to ultra-secure security. I'm sure those reasons must be excellent and that you, or someone, will be able to articulate them. Please do so for the benefit of the community at large, given that you feel the need to announce this to the community at large, rather than to the "limited set of committers".

Perhaps a Bugzilla for such a discussion thread would be appropriate to reduce noise levels on the mailing list.

Regards,
Ed

Hi Everyone,

 As some of you may know we have traditionally provided a limited set of committers with shell access to build.eclipse.org, and all other committers having restricted shells.

For the last couple of years[1][2] we've been working to reduce that number as far as possible, and the time has come to finish the process.

Effective August 28th 2019 we will be transitioning all committers that still have a regular shell to our restricted shell. You will still be able to use SFTP and SCP to interact with the downloads and archive areas(but we suggest a job on your Eclipse CI instance!)

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Webmaster.

-Matt.
