Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Graduate Apache NetBeans (incubating) as a TLP
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2019 02:40:14 GMT
Hi Justin,

We're close to being able to shutdown/redirect completely and
use for everything. In terms of content, everything we
wanted to keep from, e.g., tutorials and feature descriptions,
has been donated by Oracle to Apache. We're matching the URL structure of
the original as much as possible so that redirects from, for
example, to will be

The main part that has to be dealt with still is, for
which there have been several discussions on the dev mailing list at Apache
NetBeans. Here the challenge is that Apache cannot host and distribute the
NetBeans plugins and either Maven Central and/or GitHub will be used for
this, with the application at (which itself has been
donated by Oracle to Apache) needing to be rewritten to be a catalog of
references to wherever the plugins will be hosted -- and that catalog will
run at via our Apache NetBeans Virtual VM. Once this
part has been completed (at a point that is not possible to determine right
now but one assumes during this year), we'll be able to redirect everything
from to

Note also that not everything that is NetBeans has been donated yet -- in
particular, the C/C++ features of NetBeans are in process for donation,
with some other parts following that, e.g., support for Python, Ruby, and
several other pieces like that. Hopefully this year too, though np
guarantees -- this is tracked at, which is
not completely up to date, but something we are working on.
