The GNU Toolchain Infrastructure Project

Hi,

We are using overseers to coordinate this and see how we can
mix-and-match pieces of this proposal. And to better understand how
this proposal interacts with Sourceware becoming a Conservancy member
project. So I added overseers@sourceware.org to have one central place
for these discussions.

I assume www.gnu.org was the easiest way for you to quickly make these
things public. But it now does look like it is an official FSF/GNU
proposal. Which I assume wasn't your intention. Note that it contains
a copyright notice "© 2022, GTI TAC." but doesn't seem to have a
(free) license. Which is kind of necessary if you host it on
www.gnu.org.

This does raise the question if you are also proposing migrating
non-sourceware services for projects like the websites of various of
the GNU projects on www.gnu.org or the release archives at the GNU ftp
server (and mirrors) those projects use.

The attendees list a subset of the GTI TAC members you posted
earlier. Was there any other way for people to participate in these
discussions? Did the GTI TAC invite the LF/IT team to give this
presentation or was this a proposal from the LF?

I note that this discussion and what you presented at Caudron was for
the migration of all services of all projects hosted on
Sourceware. But that your latest proposal is just for a subset of
projects, possibly only in part as would best suit their needs.

Lets file some sourceware infrastructure bugzilla entries for some of
these ideas in this presentation, to get a better understanding what
the real needs are. It would also be nice to hear the prices/budget
for the various options suggested in the presentation.

Cheers,

Mark
