>> SIR01 Migration of large existing Mercurial repository to Apache Git

As I understand it, you have 33 Hg repos - assuming you are looking to
migrate all of those do you have someone on the Netbeans side who can
manage that migration?

>> SIR02 Migration of internal Oracle release infrastructure to Apache infrastructure

I'd love to see a discussion of what release infrastructure you have -
are we talking CI? Is this merely a means to download binaries? Are we
talking something else?  Most projects make releases available via our
mirror system, though there are a few exceptions out there.

>> SIR03 Migration of plugin publication system,, to Apache infrastructure

This looks to be an interesting. Are the plugins gated by license? Any
vetting going on? Is there a history of DMCA requests being served by
things uploaded to plugins.nb.o? How much bandwidth does this site
consume? Are their folks who can maintain this site from bare metal up
in the project?

>> SIR04 Migration of website and related content management system to Apache infrastructure

What are you using now for website/CMS?

>> SIR05 Evaluation and identification of other NetBeans infrastructure to be migrated
to Apache infrastructures

I'd love to know up front what other infrastructure you view as
important enough to be migrated.
