[jwt-dev] AW: [] Infrastructure update

Hi Denis,

great April Fool's joke! At the beginning I thought, hey, that's okay to
have a little less disk quota, probably we won't need that much. But with
the server changes you made me suspicious (who would voluntarily want to
migrate running Linux servers to Windows?)
But the CVS depricated description made it obvious: you are problably not
doing anything of the above. And I do not believe that you have too much
time, obviously ;-)

Thanks for this joke and best regards,

Betreff: [] Infrastructure update

Greetings committers,

Here's a quick update for you on the Infrastructure front:

1. Reduced disk quotas
2. Server changes, overhaul
3. CVS deprecated

1. Reduced disk quotas

Please note that effective next week, all projects will see their disk
quotas reduced as follows, according to project seniority:

- projects created from Nov. 2001 - Nov 2002: 15 GB
- Dec. 2002 - Oct 2004: 10 GB
- Nov. 2004 - Now: 5 GB
- New projects after April 2008: 1 GB

We estimate p2 will greatly reduce disk requirements, hence the reduced disk

2. Server changes, overhaul

We'll be migrating our server infrastructure from Linux to Windows 
Server. With all the process automation Bjorn and Karl have been working 
on, the webmasters no longer know what to do with all their spare time 
and need something to occupy their time.

3. CVS deprecated

Please note that CVS is now deprecated. Please switch to Subversion, 
because it's better.  All projects still on CVS by the end of the week 
will be erased.

As usual, thanks for your cooperation.
