[orbit-dev] Fwd: [] Reminder: Code repository moves

Hi Orbit-devs,

Anyone have thoughts on timing for this?

I had originally thought we may be able to end of life the Orbit project before gerrit shuts down because of the significant improvements to pulling from Maven directly in target files. However the reality is that it looks like Orbit will be with us for some time to come. Therefore I have started a request with the webmaster to migrate to GitHub ( just after the 2022-03 release cycle is finished, so late March 2023.

Please reply with comments or add them to the helpdesk issue

To: <>

Hi Everyone,

  I just wanted to remind you all that starting in Q1 2023 the Webmaster team will begin randomly selecting 15-20 projects per quarter(starting with the least active ones) to move to either GitLab(default) or GitHub during the next quarter. This process will be repeated until all projects have been moved.  This is part of our ongoing work to shutdown our Gerrit instance[1]. 

Projects are welcome to immediately plan a date before the Gerrit shutdown in May 2025 that is convenient for them, as well as which service(Gitlab/Github) they want to move to by filing a HelpDesk[2] issue and the Webmaster team will work those projects to complete the move of their code repositories..

Otherwise projects selected for compulsory moves will be notified via a public issue and posts to their mailing lists.   If projects are unresponsive to these notifications Webmaster will work with the Foundation's project team to determine if the project is still active and terminate inactive projects, or migrate them to GitLab by default.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Webmaster.
