Mailing lists

300+ openoffice.org project and user mailing lists

Legacy lists are using SYMPA list manager software. Apache uses ezmlm.  We will create a smaller number of ezmlm lists at Apache and assist users of the legacy lists subscribe to the new lists. Lists will be migrated in stages, starting the week of October 30th. After migration the legacy lists will be shut down. Complete archives will be preserved at MarkMail .

Details of the plan are here .

*2012-03-02*

Legacy lists will be disabled on March 15th.  Users are being notified by various means, including a blog post,posts to the legacy lists, and a post to ooo-announce.

Download Archives

http://archive.services.openoffice.org/pub/openoffice-archive/

tbd

Short term:
Secure all releases (binary and source tarballs) up to OOo 3.3 / 3.2.1 (latest stable), OOo 3.4 Beta (latest Beta) and DEV300m106 (latest Dev Build).
Long term:
Buildup a little mirror network with 2-4 mirrors that provide legacy releases as it done in the old OOo project. Then not the complete mirror network has to offer all builds (> 200 GB diskspace).


*Long term: tdb*

tbd

FTP Master Server

http://rsyncmaster.services.openoffice.org/

tbd

Short term:
With the shutdown of the *.services.openoffice.org domain this host will go away. This should be OK because as long as we don't provide any new releases there is nothing that the OOo mirror network could and should rsync to.

Long term:
Buildup a new host so that the OOo mirror network can rsync to to get all new releases that should be provided to the world.

*Short term: 2011-10-30*

Completed
Host is currently not necessary


*Long term: tbd*

MirrorBrain

http://download.services.openoffice.org/files/

tbd

When we do not save this service we will loose our legacy download system how it is currently working. The legacy OOo download website is not working with the Apache method. It's not predictable how much effort and time is necessary to adjust it.

Recommendation:
Secure the service as it is now, find a suitable server inside the ASF or - if not possible - somewhere else (e.g., Team OpenOffice.org e.V. ) that can maintain/host the service. Then copy over the VM, point the download website to this host and the download system is up and running again.

Short term:
Backup the VM with the original service instance and switch the download system to the backup server in case of any outage.

Long term:
Secure the legacy OOo download system as long as possible. However, new Apache OO releases will use the Apache Mirror system.

No MirrorBrain --> No downloads

*Short term: 2011-11-02*

Original service is still alive,
switch-over to backup system can be done at any time,
backup of VM was done

Crash Reporter

http://report.services.openoffice.org

Before OOo is crashing it tries to collect important data (e.g., Platform/OS version, OOo build ID, loaded libraries, but of course no personal data) and send it via Internet to a server. This helps the developers to analyze the crash, identify the root cause and if possible to fix it.

  1. I modified templates and extensions to state that no one has volunteered and that several outages have occurred.

    I also added a note to the mirror brain issue and some textual changes. The system will not be needed for Apache OO releases.
