Description Björn Michaelsen 2012-07-20 18:33:37 UTC
Development moves to gerrit and abandons fd.o as the default push location.

The repo at http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/website/ is reportedly dead except for some remaining bits and pieces. These have to be merged to the repo at github by 2012-08-31 as:
- the repo will not be migrated to gerrit in its zombie state
- the current status of multiple desynced repos existing is utterly confusing to newcomers and a roadblock to teamgrowth

If we possibly put the github repo to gerrit (and sync back to github) for easier contributor access (only Open-ID required) is independant of that.

Higher Severity because of deadline.
Comment 1 Christian Lohmaier 2012-07-23 14:24:38 UTC
Included in that mix (and what is still used/needed) and I will take care of moving:

* tinderbox server-side part
* code for bugzilla assistant
* opengrok

Andreas should take care of 

* ExtensionCenter

Kendy should take care of

* update notification part

I guess the rest is obsolete (AFAICT)

I'm nor sure whether the move implies that the old website repository would be deleted from freedesktop.org server, i.e. whether one should do a full clone as archival copy in addition to the creation of the separate ones for the specific items listed above.

Andreas is already member of tdf-organisation, Kendy is not.

I guess this is completed.
