Subject Fwd: [IMPORTANT] - Migration to ci-builds.a.o
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2020 19:57:06 GMT
Hi -

This migration has been completed for the Incubator clutch analysis and site build.

It’s crunch time now. Some podlings have managed to move their builds, but others have not.

(1) Request a Folder for your project from Infra. We are no longer putting podling builds
in the Incubator folder.
(2) There is a script to move build ”projects”.
(3) Request missing plugins from Infra on builds@a.o mailing list.
(4) Fix any GitHub credential issues.

Ask for help.

Start yesterday!

> Hi All,
> This NOTICE is for everyone on We are migrating to a new
> Cloudbees based Client Master called The
> migrations of all jobs needs to be done before the switch off date of 15th
> August 2020, so you have a maximum of 4 weeks.
> There is no tool or automated way of migrating your jobs, the
> differences in the platforms, the plugins and the setup makes it impossible
> to do in a safe way. So, you all need to start creating new jobs on
> ci-infra.a.o and then , when you are happy, turn off your old builds on
> builds.a.o.
> There are currently 4 agents over there ready to take jobs, plus a floating
> agent which is shared amongst many masters (more to come). I will migrate
> away 2 more agents from builds.a.o to ci-builds.a.o every few days, and
> will keep an eye of load across both and adjust accordingly.
> If needed, create a ticket on INFRA jira for any issues that crop up, or
> email here on builds@a.o. there may be one or two plugins we need to
> install/tweak etc.
> We will be not using 'Views' at the top level, but rather we will take
> advantage of 'Folders Plus' - each project will get its own Folder and have
> authorisation access to create/edit jobs etc within that folder. I will
> create these folders as you ask for them to start with. This setup allows
> for credentials isolation amongst other benefits, including but not limited
> to exclusive agents (Controlled Agents) for your own use , should you have
> any project targeted donations of agents.
> As with other aspects of the ASF, projects can choose to just enable all
> committers access to their folder, just ask.
> We will re-use as a CNAME to ci-builds.a.o but will not
> be setting up any forwarding rules or anything like that.
> So, please, get started *now *on this so you can be sure we are all
> completed before the final cutoff date of 15th August 2020.
> Any questions - I expect a few (dozen :) ) - ask away and/or file INFRA
> tickets.
> Hadoop and related projects have their own migration path to follow, same
> cut off date, Cassandra, Beam, CouchDB have already migrated and are doing
> very well in their new homes.
> Lets get going ...
