To prepare for the migration of to the managed Gerrit
server run by the Eclipse Foundation, *ALL* contributors need to make
sure their account's preferred email address is set to the same email
address they use to login to Bugzilla and the developer portal.

You can view/edit the Preferred Email field here:

Please do this by Thursday, January 26, 2012 19:00 UTC. Matthias will
take a backup of our existing server sometime after that and pass it
to Denis for import.

I'll shutdown the Gerrit server later today in order to prepare the migration
to the foundation's shiny new server. The Git daemon and Gitweb on will be still available for read access. 

As soon as the migration was successfully finished reviews

I did shutdown the Gerrit server on and provided
a database backup and a copy of the git repositories to the 
webmaster for migration to

The migration is done: 
  • JGit and EGit repositories are now hosted on the new Eclipse Gerrit server [1] 
  • logon is described in the Contributor Guide [2]
  • Gitweb has been replaced by cgit [3]
  • The continuous integration builds are back online
  • The Hudson CI jobs verifying changes pushed for review are going to be
    moved to main Hudson, see [4] 
  • A few configurations are still to be done: links to other changes in Gerrit,
    links to bugs, links to cgit. Webmaster is aware of this and will fix this soon.
  • see the updated Contributor Guide [5] for more details
Let us know if you face any problems with the new setup.
