|[eclipse.org-committers] Upcoming and proposed changes to the Eclipse infra|
This issue is action packed, so I'll try
to keep it short.
Decommission build.eclipse.org -
We're planning on decommissioning the
venerable build.eclipse.org server soon. We'll post updates in
the bug, and we'll schedule brown-outs, and we don't think this
will have any impact on most of our projects.
Turn off git:// protocol on
git.eclipse.org - https://eclip.se/574076
For those using git.eclipse.org, we're
wondering how useful the git:// protocol is, as the https
protocol is available for anonymous Git operations. In addition
to using a secure channel, https is also ubiquitous and doesn't
require any corporate firewall tweaking. The current git://
service is hosted on antique servers that are on the chopping
block, and rather than move the service, we'd rather turn it
off. Please switch to https in your builds if you haven't done
so already, and/or voice your concerns in the bug.
Eclipse CI (Jiro) - what's happening?
Our Releng team
has been working hard over the past two years to migrate all
CI instances to a Kubernetes-powered cluster. While the
migration effort is nearing its completion, we are struggling
with some growing pains. Today's CI cluster hosts 253
Jenkins-based CI-instances, and many projects have reported
slow build times . We've since been moving file systems,
storage devices, network segments and upgrading cluster nodes
with SSDs to help speed up your builds. Many thanks for your
patience while we address this issue.
Eclipse GitLab - https://gitlab.eclipse.org/
We've had much success in migrating
Eclipse projects to our GitLab instance. If you're using
git.eclipse.org you may want to consider migrating to
GitLab. If you're interested, or if you have any questions
about the process, please file an issue here:
here to help.
Thanks for reading! Please follow-up on the referenced bugs if you wish to comment, or have any questions or concerns.
