There will be another scheduled outage of most public Osmocom services (redmine, jenkins, gerrit) on 2020-07-21 7:30am CEST with an expected maximum duration of 45 minutes.
There is an urgent need to migrate our most important public infrastructure to a new server, and I will be doing that on Sunday, July 19 2020, starting about 9am CEST.
The migration involves redmine (main osmocom.org website), jenkins, gerrit, git, and cgit.
In theory, the migration should be quick. I would expect (significantly) less than one hour of downtime. However, we all know Murphys law.
Services not affected are mail (including mailman lists), ftp, dns. So in case of doubt, we can still use mailing lists to communicate.
In case anyone urgently needs osmocom source code on Sunday morning during the downtime: There are public mirrors available on github.
We've upgraded our redmine project management software from 3.2 to 3.4, which gets us a number of interesting new features and fixes.
This opportunity was also used to install a number of interesting redmine plugins.
Among the intresting new features are:
- ability to attach tags to issues and wiki pages
- projects overview page now with multiple columns and no side-pane
- preview of image attachments at bottom of issues / wiki pages
- PDF attachment preview in lightbox
- uploading/attaching of images from clipboard, including browser-based image cropping
- links to individual users/developers using the "@" notation like "@laforge" leading to laforge
- ability to add [temporary] banners and/or footers to the site
Let us know if anything was broken during the upgrade. *
This Sunday (May 13), we're planning to do some of the pending migration of osmocom.org services from our old server to a new machine.
This will cause some downtime. Hopefully it will be minimal, but for sure there will be unexpected events that will mean some of the osmocom.org services will be unavailable at some point during Sunday :/
In terms of priorities, gerrit is high up on the list, so this is the primary focus. If that goes well, redmine is the next on the list.
In case you're interested in the gory details, #3076 is the overview ticket.
