You don't, you update everything through the site ( currently at 
https://projects-new.apache.org/edit ).

With regards,

Re: Google Summer of Code 2015 Mentor Registration

Is there a compiled list anywhere of the ASF projects proposed for 
GSOC2015? Couldn't find it. Jira searches for the GSOC2015 gave me 
results kinda all over the place.

Thanks,
Hadrian

[VOTE] Replace projects.apache.org with projects-new.apache.org

I'd like for us to go ahead and replace projects.apache.org with 
projects-new.apache.org. It now has all the functionality that 
projects.a.o has, and much more, and there's no reason to have two sites 
up. If you object to moving forward with this, please say so.

[ ] +1, do it
[ ] +0, whatevs
[ ] -1, No (and say why, so we can address the problem)

Well, not totally, since GitHub allows random people creating random
projects and random people to host their forks of your project (look at
Rails) and publish that fact to the world. Yes, the web UI is paramount to
make that popular, but I agree with Mike that ASF should perhaps allow
strangers onto our infra, to stay relevant in the "next generation", who
never experienced "Pull Requests by "diff -u" in Emails"

Agree, subject to "allow strangers", which indeed is a massive decision and
one that isn't "small reversible steps" that ASF normally cherish.

But were you "invited through a system of meritocracy" or did you just
"created your own fork and hacked away" ?

I think GitHub has challenged a core value in ASF, discussed for long, and
I think ASF should consider the implications and adapt.

Really nice. This makes reporting a LOT easier.

Hi Project chairs, 
In yesterday's email to you about your upcoming board report, we forgot

The new service is located at: https://reporter.apache.org and is PMC

Should you choose to make use of the board report template in this

Next time Marvin sends you an email, it will include the URL for the

If you have ANY feedback about this system, don't hesitate to let us 
know! :)

Re: GitLab?

I do feel the need to remind people that there is also Apache Allura,
which provides a comprehensive development environment, in fact, more
comprehensive than GitHub or GitLab. Plus, last I checked, the
PMC was working w/ Infra to ensure that should Allura be installed,
there would be people *supporting* the install.

GitLab?

Opening a new thread...

Git without Github is like sex without a partner, sufficient but not very
satisfactory. Github option has been explored in the past, and due to
various reasons, it was not possible to achieve.

But, during my last 2-3 year absence, has the GitLab[1] option been
discussed and/or tried? GitLab is open sourced, can run on our infra and
has many of the essential features of Github.
But perhaps people are satisfied enough with the Github mirroring that is
already in place, but with GitLab in house, we could (in theory) add
features around licensing (like ICLA style assurance, similar to Jira), and
non-committers could(!) be allowed a direct route to the horse's mouth...

Although the Enterprise system cost money, my guess is that GitLab would be
happy to waive fees and give us access to EE.

Just a thought.

GitHub Pages

All,

Has any thought been put into leveraging GitHub pages for project
documentation, static site hosting? A lot of www.apache.org is simple
static content, as are project pages. Since a lot of projects are now using
git, and we mirror projects in GitHub, perhaps we can help the individual
projects maintain their site's static content by simply committing to a
gh-pages branch for their project?

Since it's just static content which is still hosted and controlled by ASF,
but simply placed in a way that GitHub can render it from the mirrors, I
don't think there's too many issues of concern, but wasn't sure if
anybody's put any thought into it. I know it would certainly be easier for
some projects than using the existing CMS system with SVN (especially those
otherwise developing exclusively with Git).

It might "just work" today, but I haven't tried it. I'd be willing to work
with INFRA to help experiment with it, though (especially if we wanted to
try out the CNAME feature).

http://glaforge.appspot.com/article/groovy-projects-intends-to-join-the-apache-software-foundation.

I just wanted to say im pretty excited if thats the case... and I'd love to
get involved, contribute, and help the transition any way i can.

Is is the first major programming language that is a project in the ASF ?
If so, thats really great news !

status of ooo-extras?

Do we have any further information on moving ooo-extras (backups of
external libraries) or any extras to SourceForge and what form this
might take? Latest discussion --

http://markmail.org/message/xfiafpfvhvbe4tiv

We've updated at least 2 libraries already and more will likely be needed.

In the absence of a decision on this, should we just use URL1 for these
and not include a URL2 at all?

As I mentioned previously, I'm still been computing MD5 on the new ones
and putting them in /ext_sources.
