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

I will also add that I’ve had shell access to for release engineering for something like 15 years, so this would affect me to the extent that I would be dropping support for the PTP project. If the foundation wants to do this then it should be providing a generic automated release process that all projects use, and in the interim provide the resources to convert manual release processes to CI-driven ones. If they do this, then I might reconsider, but it would depend on how difficult things become.

Hi Everyone,

  As some of you may know we have traditionally provided a limited set of committers with shell access to, 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.
