Relocate CodeHaus Jira

Reported by: jive Owned by: astrodog
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin Keywords: geotools, geoserver


Okay, adding an issue here to open a conversation with SAC.

CodeHaus ( is shutting down in one months time on April 2nd:

We need to make plans to migrate :(

A license to use Jira for open source projects is available, this should allow OSGeo to host an instance if SAC has capacity (in hardware and volunteers) to assist.

This isn't a simple yes/no question. I think we're going to need to have a longer discussion on the SAC mailing list about options.

  1. Yes we are working to rack new hardware this month, to fix and expand current capacity issues.
  2. Unless Geoserver or GeoTools et al. can volunteer an admin to run Confluence, JIRA etc no we don't really have someone for that.
  3. Alternate's include, OSGeo hosted trac, OSGeo hosted Gitlab (In planning stages), Github, etc... any existing services we already use...

More details and place to write down needs:

Thanks - Alex

Started discussion on SAC mailing list ...

  1. Good news about hardware, we would need to see about how much capacity Jira would require.
  1. GeoServer/GeoTools PSC may be in position to act as admin as we would prefer a vendor neutral home for the issue tracker.
  1. We are also looking at Jira cloud hosting, but OSGeo is our preference. The community has a strong push back to use of github / track / bugzilla due to concerns about file size (for patches and test-data).

Not sure where on that wiki to put down needs. We are pretty stressed about this sudden deadline, and the earlier we transition the better as I assume codehaus will be hammered by projects migrating close to the deadline.

Make a bullet under Sub bullets with the relevant specs, disk size, etc...

Reached out to GeoAPI project who would also appreciate finding a home at an OSGeo Jira.

Migration is starting up, will need to migrate attachments via REST.

With that in mind here are the initial projects:

New instance is up and is being used to report issues.

Migration of comments seems to have occurred last Friday. Issue details remain empty.

We have a release scheduled for the 18th affected by this process.
