it was decided that the alioth hosting service will be soon
decommissioned next month, and we should move the development to
another hosting service. I should have done that mail before, sorry.
The git itself was already mirrored on github, so I will just change
the README and everything to point to github instead.
The web server can also be hosted on github, but this has still to be
done and I'm really short on time. Any help would be welcome here. The
source code of the web pages were already mirrorred on github, but
we should take care of the hosting.
I am happy to work on getting the site running on GitHub pages. One challenge is that GH
pages doesn't support SSL. I believe we have two options:
1) Use Cloudflare's free service to do this. I am not fully in favor of this because
I feel like it is "fake" SSL because cloudflare pulls from the non-SSL gh
2) I may be able to get us hosting via Red Hat's Open Source and Standards Community
Cage program. This would be full featured and probably involve a container (with possible
CI interface) running on OpenShift. It is SSL capable.
The most concerning parts are this mailing list, and the issues that
are reported on alioth.
For the issues, I could not find any tool to move them to github and I
fear that we would have to it manually. Does someone know such an
automatic tool or would be willing to do the move? If we have an
automatic tool, I'd like to move the closed issues also, as they
contain valuable information. If not I think we should at least copy
the open issues over. Again, any help would be welcome here.
Between now and Feb 1 I won't have time to do this for sure. Do we think we can get a
dump we could parse to load later?
For the mailing lists, I have no good idea. Do you? If the list gets
shut down on Feb 1st as it could, we have the IRC channel to coordinate:
#po4a on oftc. I have a permanent presence on that channel so it could
work as a (very) temporarily solution. But someone should come up with
a better idea, I think.
I may be able to get OSAS to host this mailing list too.
I am emailing them today with the following request:
1) A mailing list
2) A web service supporting SSL
Can you tell me:
a) Who provides our ssl certificate? Lets Encrypt? who?
b) Do we have a domain name? I can probably get one purchased if we don't.
Alternately there is probably a domain name we can get a po4a@/. on.
Let me know.
Again, I'm sorry for the short notice, I'm trying to do too much
things at the same time these days.

being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer.
