Re: [NOTICE] Mandatory relocation of Apache git repositories on

When I deployed the changes to update the PMC Chair, I deployed the master branch. I checked out the site branch, but it appeared to be missing the site commits for Calcite 1.18 release and since I don't commit to Calcite often, I didn't want to cherry-pick the commits into the site branch and potentially break things.

I think deploying the master branch should be safe for now, because 1.18 was just released and there hasn't been any changes to the site for 1.19 yet.

seems to be out of sync with what's deployed. If someone who has deployed
the site recently has a chance to check it out that would be great.

The migration is already done to my surprise. I'll try to update the site
and send out an announcement to committers later today.

Thanks for sorting this out, Michael! Can't wait to try it!

Since there have been no objections and the release is now complete,

Hello Apache projects,

I am writing to you because you may have git repositories on the
git-wip-us server, which is slated to be decommissioned in the coming
months. All repositories will be moved to the new gitbox service which
includes direct write access on github as well as the standard ASF
commit access via

## Why this move? ##
The move comes as a result of retiring the git-wip service, as the
hardware it runs on is longing for retirement. In lieu of this, we
have decided to consolidate the two services (git-wip and gitbox), to
ease the management of our repository systems and future-proof the
underlying hardware. The move is fully automated, and ideally, nothing
will change in your workflow other than added features and access to

## Timeframe for relocation ##
Initially, we are asking that projects voluntarily request to move
their repositories to gitbox, hence this email. The voluntary
timeframe is between now and January 9th 2019, during which projects
are free to either move over to gitbox or stay put on git-wip. After
this phase, we will be requiring the remaining projects to move within
one month, after which we will move the remaining projects over.

To have your project moved in this initial phase, you will need:

- Consensus in the project (documented via the mailing list)
- File a JIRA ticket with INFRA to voluntarily move your project repos
     over to gitbox (as stated, this is highly automated and will take
     between a minute and an hour, depending on the size and number of
     your repositories)

To sum up the preliminary timeline;

- December 9th 2018 -> January 9th 2019: Voluntary (coordinated)
- January 9th -> February 6th: Mandated (coordinated) relocation
- February 7th: All remaining repositories are mass migrated.

This timeline may change to accommodate various scenarios.

## Using GitHub with ASF repositories ##
When your project has moved, you are free to use either the ASF
repository system ( OR GitHub for your development
and code pushes. To be able to use GitHub, please follow the primer

We appreciate your understanding of this issue, and hope that your
project can coordinate voluntarily moving your repositories in a
timely manner.

All settings, such as commit mail targets, issue linking, PR
notification schemes etc will automatically be migrated to gitbox as

With regards, Daniel on behalf of ASF Infra.

project's dev list :-).
