A Site of Sites

The opensolaris.org website is not just one place or one application. It's actually a site of many applications providing a variety of services to users and developers around the world. Bonnie recently updated the OpenSolaris Site Map to better organize these services so it's easier to understand what's out there and how people can use these tools to build software and community. That last bit is important, too. The more tools we can provide to enable people to get involved and contribute the more we can grow as a community. What's cool is that the list is starting to add up, the number of people maintaining these services is growing, and more is planned:

  • arc.opensolaris.org: Architecture Review Committee case data
  • auth.opensolaris.org: Membership/account management application
  • bugs.opensolaris.org: Bugs-by-mail submission to Sun's Bugster database
  • cr.opensolaris.org: Code review tool
  • defect.opensolaris.org: Open defect tracking
  • hub.opensolaris.org: XWiki-based site for community editing
  • jucr.opensolaris.org: Package/spec file submission
  • mail.opensolaris.org: Mailing list management
  • pkg.opensolaris.org: Open source package repositories
  • pkgfactory.opensolaris.org: Automated collection/build/submission of FOSS to jucr
  • poll.opensolaris.org: Community voting
  • repo.opensolaris.org: Source code management console: Mercurial & Subversion
  • rti.opensolaris.org: Open request-to-integrate tool under development
  • src.opensolaris.org: Source browser
  • test.opensolaris.org: Access to test farm

Since there are over a dozen applications making up opensolaris.org, the look and feel varies a bit. We'll need to solve that as part of the next phase of work in the website transition. We'll layer a more common graphical feel across everything. After we move off the current portal application on Monday, we will begin work on Phase 3. We are planning that work now, and we'll update the infrastructure roadmap to reflect those changes over the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to that phase of the project because it will require working with new teams across the community and all of the owners of the services above. Once we finish Phase 3 we will have transitioned the website off of the current infrastructure entirely. We are doing this in stages, of course, while maintaining current operations. First was Auth. Then XWiki. And next will be some of the other key applications that are still currently tied to the old portal.

A note about the list of services above: one application not on the list is the Community Translation Interface. It's not on opensolaris.org because it is a tool to facilitate community translations across all of Sun's FOSS projects, not just OpenSolaris. This application has enabled many contributions from the OpenSolaris community, so check it out along with the others.
