[WARNING] Will Issuezilla survive?
By lukas on Dec 21, 2008
The main reason for the move is that it is easier to understand what platform means to more users than the the core/openide concept that became too complicated. And therefore it should be easier to enter new issues. We will also close the openide/core components for new issues.
It also means to move the old issues to the new location. Unfortunately, CollabNet who is the owner of the Issuezilla and the only one who could update these issues directly in database won't help us. Therefore we have to do it by ourself. This move will generate thousands of emails to all the reporters, owners and people on CC. To reduce the number of emails we will move "only" those issues that are opened or were changed in last 2 years. Anyway, it means to move almost 5500 issues. We apologize for all the emails generated by the move.
The move will happen from 22nd to 23rd December 2008. The worst scenario is that CollabNet infrastructure won't survive so many emails and changes in the Issuezilla. And the netbeans.org will be down for a while. We hope that the whole move will happen smoothly without problems. Thank you for understanding if a problem with nb.org will appear.
