Subject: OpenJDK server migration TODAY (Friday 2014/3/7)
To: announce at openjdk.java.net
We're going to migrate the OpenJDK db, cr, hg, and mail domains,
as well as the root openjdk.java.net domain, to a new server later
today. The bugs and wiki domains will not be affected.
Here's the time line:
14:00 PST (22:00 UTC) -- Servers go into read-only mode;
inbound e-mail will be queued
21:00 PST (05:00 UTC) -- DNS entries change
23:00 PST (07:00 UTC) -- Service restored
After the DNS entries change most services should be available for
reading, but not for writing. A followup announcement will be sent
once all services are back to normal.
We're taking this opportunity to upgrade the Mercurial (hg) server
to use Mercurial version 2.9. As a consequence:
- The push-only "-gate" repos will no longer be needed and will be
removed. After the migration changes must be pulled from, and
pushed to, the same repository. (Pushes will still be done via
ssh, not http.) If you have recorded "-gate" repository paths
in any .hg/hgrc files then you'll have to remove the "-gate"
suffix from those paths.
- The unsupported Forest extension will no longer be present on the
server, so commands such as fpush, fpull, fincoming, etc., will no
longer work. As an alternative you can use the recently-published
Trees extension  or the existing get_source.sh script .
- The minimum recommended version of Mercurial on the client side is
2.6.3, although earlier versions are likely to continue to work.
After the migration, please report any problems (as usual) to ops at
openjdk dot java dot net.
