Re: [] Quick webmaster update

I'm concerned by the replication policy in place on CVS (point number 2). It often happens that teams delay the build until their submission is ready. Once the submission is done they ask the release engineering team to trigger the build.
It seems that with the replication system, this will cause problems.
How long does it take to replicate?

[] Quick webmaster update

Sorry for all the SPAM..  This is the last one, I promise.

1. Not anymore! Our QoS rules were off, causing bugzilla and CVS traffic
to fight for bandwidth with the public downloads. This has been
[finally] fixed.

-- CVS pserver access - anyone using pserver should read this --
2. There is a delay between files committed using extssh and their
visibility in pserver due to replication. pserver cvs is still
load-balanced and redundant, whereas extssh cvs is not. Keep this in
mind if you commit a file (extssh) then run a build (pserver).

-- Technology repository committers - read this if nothing else! --
3. I accidentally discovered that committers were able to commit to the
Technology CVS repository using PSERVER. This configuration oversight
never got picked up until folks started reporting that their commits
were being overwritten as a result of issue 2. above. This has been
corrected, so all the Technology committers must now use extssh to
authenticate and commit to their repository.

-- New tools for you - because I care (really!)  --
4. I'm working on a new set of web-based tools for committers. These
tools will allow you to check group memberships and permissions, check
disk quota status, change your password, check the
infrastructure status (bandwidth and server load) and read one-liner
status reports from yours truly. More tools will be added, such as a
HOW-TO section with common solutions to quircks and
"features". I'll post the URL whenever I'm have something workable.

Thanks for hanging in there while we migrated everything over to the new
hardware. There were some bumps, but everything should be running
smoothly now.
