Apache Incubator To-Do

Active Tasks

  • once we move out of the incubator, Apache will be able to transition the incubator subscriber list to the apache.org one; move sa-dev to dev at spamassassin.apache.org; move the PPMC list; set up announce at spamassassin.apache.org

(underway, requested Infrastructure, request at http://nagoya.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-93 --JustinMason)

  • advise MARC of latest list move, for both users, dev and announce
  • advise GMANE of latest list move, ditto
  • -dev-de and -dev-br lists are set up; it's up to their moderators to decide when/if to move. they'll mail me (jm) at that point.
  • Move Bugzilla database to Apache.
  • wait for domain transfer from MR to ASF to complete.
  • move rsync and related cron jobs to Apache

(I don't think we're going to do this just yet, keeping them on bz instead. it's a lot of data. --JustinMason)


  • *DONE* Move web site to a tree alongside trunk under SVN and then to Apache.
  • *DONE* port building code to build on minotaur
  • *DONE* Redirect SpamAssassin web mirrors and old web site to new Apache web site.
  • *DONE* shut down old mirrors and spamassassin.taint.org, leave as pure redirects, use old.spamassassin.org as the source for 2.63 and prior releases
  • *DONE* Ask MR for spamassassin.org domain transfer to ASF
  • *IGNORED* Ask ASF board to approve putting up old releases that are GPL/PAL dual license under Apache release system (as archived old releases). (Sander)

(it's ok – we will maintain an archive at http://old.spamassassin.org/ , off ASF space.)

  • *DONE* shell accounts for SpamAssassin committers (AFAIK, you just need to request one)
  • *DONE* move the wiki
  • *DONE* move SA-talk list:
  • *DONE* we open up a new <SpamAssassin-users /at/ incubator.apache.org> list, with no default subscriber list
  • *DONE* we join (wink) Also, committers who would like to help with moderation would be great. Michael Parker has said he'd be happy to help on this (duncf: perhaps this should read "anyone who would like to help with moderation would be great")
  • *DONE* we post a message to SpamAssassin-talk noting the new list; also amend list info page, list description, and lists.html
  • *DONE* set -talk to moderated status, so posting is impossible
  • *IGNORED* subscribe -talk to -users, so that postings to -users are flooded through to -talk: not done, not needed.
  • *DONE* let people subscribe to -users as they like
  • *DONE* they will also be able to set List-Id header to remain the same for both lists, both during and after incubation (Malte's request)
  • *DONE* advise MARC of list move
  • *DONE* advise GMANE of list move
  • No labels
