Hudson in Unexpected Lock-Down
Hudson Migrated Without Prior Warning?
Kohsuke Kawaguchi has blogged about what's been going on at Hudson this week, after the project was migrated to the new java.net infrastructure, reportedly without the team receiving notification on the project's assigned date for migration. By the time the community noticed, the Hudson Subversion repository was already locked down. Kawaguchi tried to get Hudson pulled out of the cycle of migration, but was told by the people organising the move, that it was already too late. The migration will "definitely take a week," but, since it is Thanksgiving weekend, Kawaguchi assumes it may take even longer. "I find this situation plain unacceptable," he says.
So, where you can you get your hands on Hudson goodies now? The Hudson mailing lists are available at Google Groups, and the Hudson core source code has been long synced to GitHub. He's also currently working on setting up Gerrit to streamline the patch review process to the core, in an attempt to lower the barrier of entry. The migration of the Hudson plugin repositories is still being discussed.
"My apologies that these changes had to happen quickly — I'm just as frustrated as you are, but given the circumstances, I think this is the best course of action. Hopefully everything will be in place within a few days. And in the mean time, thanks for your patience."
