|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Upgrade to latest Jenkins LTS version during CW 3 (January 18-22)|
This is fantastic. Thanks for keeping the infra up-to-date and running well.
Hi, We've completed the upgrade of all our Jenkins instances to the latest LTS version (2.263.2) a little bit ahead of time. There is still room for improvement, but this LTS upgrade was quicker than the last one. This was possible since most of our Jenkins instances (~220 of 260) are hosted on our cluster based infrastructure and could be upgraded semi-automatically (so with a lot less clicky-clicky). => Kudos to Mikaël Barbero! Please let us know if anything does not behave the way it should be and we will take a look.

During CW 3 (January 18-22) we will gradually upgrade all of our CI instances to the latest Jenkins LTS version to provide new features and important security updates. * Why do you spread the upgrade over a week? We have more than 250 active CI instances that need to be upgraded. To spread the load and wait for running builds to finish, we distribute the upgrade over several days. We are planning to improve this and cut down the required time in the future. * How long will my project's CI instance be unavailable? In most cases, this will require only a restart of each CI instance and should not take more than an hour (this is a *very* conservative estimate to be on the safe side). If no builds are running, we simply run the upgrade. If builds are running, we either wait for them to complete or contact the projects directly to find a suitable time for a restart.

Please let us know, if you have any other questions or concerns. Regards, Fred
