upcoming bugzilla outage
Wed Dec 10 21:28:00 GMT 2008
Hi all. Please excuse the cross-post. And, if you do respond, please
trim the CC list (but also please continue to CC me, since I am not on
all of these lists).
I've been wanting to move gdb from gnats to bugzilla for some time
now. I think I've finally procrastinated enough.
I intend to do the switchover next Thursday, Dec 18. If this poses a
problem for you, please let me know.
If you are seeing this on a list other than the gdb list, it is
because this outage will take down bugzilla for your project while I
do the transition. An outage is necessary because we would like the
converted bug IDs to be sequential.
I will dump the database before starting, so if something awful
happens, I will have a backup. I thought you'd want to know.
I have done this upgrade several times on a local bugzilla instance,
and I think it should go reasonably well. Still, it may take a few
hours. I'll start in the morning, US Mountain time.
GDB readers: I'm going to disable gnats before I start. I'll send a
patch to update the web pages. I have a patch to fix the scripts in
CVSROOT so that commits are logged in bugzilla, not gnats. I will
check this in once everything is working. If you could briefly
refrain from commits which update Gnats, that would be helpful.
Overseers: I'd like to keep the gnats database around for a while,
just in case we happen to need something. But, I think that once this
conversion is complete, we can at the very least disable the service.
