|[eclipse.org-committers] build.eclipse.org will be going away - March 31, 2021|
A quick update from the Infra desk:
== build.eclipse.org shutdown ==
build.eclipse.org was set up at a time before Hudson CI, when some projects were using it for CruiseControl. It was our first Hudson host and it paved the way to builds and CI at Eclipse.org. Although it's been upgraded numerous times over the years, it's reached the end of its practical life and must be retired.
As most of the services have been
removed, the concept of "build.eclipse.org" is no longer
relevant. It is still used as a storage and serving location
for Nightly Builds by some projects, however. If your projects
is using build.eclipse.org for anything, please make the
necessary arrangements to use a different service.
== GitLab is open for business
Our GitLab instance, running at
https://gitlab.eclipse.org/ is open for business. Projects can
request a migration (from GitHub or git.eclipse.org) by filing
an issue  Some additional migration info can be found here
Migration is not mandatory at
this time. However, in an effort to consolidate, modernize
and streamline our infra, we plan on deprecating the usage of
Bugzilla, MediaWiki and Git/Gerrit early in 2021, for retirement
in late 2022. By the 2023, we hope that the only two
development platforms for Eclipse projects are GitLab and

mail and mailing list infra ==
We are currently working on an improved
(and modernized) mail infra for our mailing lists. The current
stack is rather old, which is becoming increasingly problematic
for mailing list delivery. Expect some news in the new year.
== Holiday Shutdown ==
The Eclipse Foundation will be closed
from December 23 through January 4. Webmasters, WebDevs and
Release Engineers will monitor activity lightly and intervene
only if necessary, as is customary for the period.
Thanks for reading. if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at webmaster.eclipse.org.
On behalf of all of us at the Eclipse Foundation, stay warm, stay safe, and all the best for the holiday season!
