Migration task list

The GRASS infrastructure is described in the infrastructure document.

To finish in 2007

Source code repository migration to OSGeo SVN

Migration from CVS to OSGeo SVN

Task manager: Martin Landa, Howard Butler

  • Description: SVN hosting
  • Implementation: Migration from CVS to SVN
  • Date: end of Nov 2007 (needs to be done in 2007)
  • Requirements: Developers need to get all of their commits in CVS done by Friday YY at XX PM UTC. Then we migrate during the weekend.
  • Status: open

Migration from GRASS Addons SVN to OSGeo SVN

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Martin Landa, Howard Butler

  • Description: Server change
  • Date: end of Nov 2007 (needs to be done in 2007)
  • Task: SVN dump at grass.itc.it (done via rsync), then import at svn.osgeo.org
  • Implementation: Migration from CVS to SVN
  • Status: open

Developer's TODO: get your "osgeo_id"

Detailed migration plan

  1. At least 24 hours notice will be provided in GRASS-dev mailing list before the transition starts to allow committers to commit any outstanding work that is ready to into the repository.(DONE)
  2. When the conversion starts, the GRASS CVS SSH daemon will be stopped (notification DONE), and archived again (TODO: rsync on josef and grass.itc.it) to avoid any confusion.
  3. The conversion will be done by Martin Landa using the cvs2svn tool, see Migration from CVS to SVN for details including SVN dump plus transfer to OSGeo.org
  4. The source access information (contributors.csv) will be updated in the documentation; the web pages as well.
  5. Committers will need to get a login on osgeo.org (see above; all have been personally informed) and notify Markus Neteler to regain commit access to SVN (managed here). Committer access on the new repository will be enabled after the above changes are all complete and after email agreement of each committer to RFC2 (legal aspects) was sent to Markus. File 'contributors.csv' keeps track on that. Any enabled GRASS developer can activate new 'osgeo_id's following the PSC procedure.
  6. The GRASS committers document should be updated. <- which?

Migration of GForge bugtracker to OSGeo trac

Task manager: Maciej Sieczka, Howard Butler

  • Description: SVN hosting
  • Date: end of Nov 2007 (needs to be done in 2007)
  • Task 1: migrate GForge bugs to trac (how?)
  • Task 2: migrate old RT bugs to trac (how?)
  • Status: open

Cron job Migration

Retire:

  • cron_build_50tutor.sh -> outdated? keep?
  • cron_cvs_DGLIBsnapshot.sh -> do we need it as separate package?
  • cron_cvs_rsync.sh: rsync Intevation CVS to grass.itc.it (no need to keep after migration)

Maybe:

  • cron_grass60_src_snapshot.sh -> outdated? keep?

Todo:

(all to be changed to SVN server after migration) - generated on download.osgeo.org

  • cron_grass63_generate_prog_manuals_PDF.sh PDFs: done
  • cron_grass63_generate_prog_manuals_HTML.sh HTML: done
  • Stable weekly snapshots:
    • cron_grass62_release_src_snapshot.sh
    • cron_grass62_release_build_bins.sh
  • Unstable weekly snapshots:
    • cron_grass63_src_snapshot.sh
    • cron_grass63_build_bins.sh
  • cron_grass_fetch_usermap.sh: User map for web site hosted at GDF Hannover
  • cron_grassweb_update.sh: Web pages -> obsolete, once the Drupal migration is done
  • Suggestion: Maintain all cronjob scripts in OSGeo SVN repository fo easy maintenance (but manually copy into cron space for security reasons)
  • Date: Dec 2007
  • Status: open

Web Migration to grass.osgeo.org

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Wolf Bergenheim

  • make grass.osgeo.org first site for Web-CVS update and rsync mirrors
  • Date: Dec 2007
  • Status: open

Search engine Migration

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Wolf Bergenheim, Tyler Mtchell

  • Currently htdig based on grass.itc.it, due to Apache rewrite engine new lists.osgeo.org isn't picked up
  • Google, Yahoo etc. need time to re-fetch the archive
  • Mailman archives at lists.osgeo.org are slightly shifted in email reference number since the archives have been recreated
  • TODO: verify with OSGeo how to search lists
  • TODO: decides how to archive 'grass-commit'
  • Date: Dec 2007
  • Status: open

Web statistics Migration

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Wolf Bergenheim

  • we have server statistics (apache logs) from 2002 onwards for grass.itc.it (the server delivered 6.73 Tb so far which is underestimated due to some lacking log data)
    • log files to be donated to OSGeo for Marketing analysis (backup)
  • grass.osgeo.org needs (has?) server statistics
  • Date: Dec 2007
  • Status: open

To do in 2008

Wiki Migration

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Martin Spott, Howard Butler, Martin Landa

  • Description: Migration of GDF Mediawiki to OSGeo Mediawiki (incl. version update)
  • Date: Jan 2008?
  • Status: open

Web Migration to Drupal

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Wolf Bergenheim

  • Description: Migration of HTML Web pages to OSGeo Drupal (update to Drupal 5 ongoing there)
  • Date: Jan 2008?
  • Status: open
  • Note: the site http://grass.osgeo.org has been set up already
  • Note: the site http://www.grass-gis.org is a rewrite rule to that site
  • Important: only 70% of the files are in CVS, all big files are a local copy on grass.itc.it and need to be transferred via rsync
--HB: Could someone provide details on what work is entailed in a migration to "Drupal 5"? Better, could someone provide a Drupal mock-up of what the GRASS front page and downloads page would be like?

Done

Migration of Mailman lists

Task manager: Markus Neteler, Frank Warmerdam

  • Description: move of all grass.itc.it Mailman lists to http://lists.osgeo.org
  • Date: 15 Nov 2007
  • Note 1: some lists have been renamed for consistency
  • Note 2: the old list addresses still work and are auto-fwd'ed to the new list addresses
  • Note 3: the archives are redirected to lists.osgeo.org through Apache Rewrite engine
  • Status: done

Special Note for weblist: The list is open to submit Web site comments but spam prone. Due to the lack of spam filter on the OSGeo site, it is now configured as follows:

 User -> weblist at grass itc.it -> /etc/aliases -> 
         -> neteler.osgeo..gmail.com (for Spam filtering) -> FWD -> 
           -> grass-web at lists osgeo.org
