Subject [IMPORTANT][PLEASE-READ] Graduation tasks and git repo changes
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 21:53:03 GMT

The ASF infra@ was super fast, as usual (or as expected :), dunno) and 
most of the work is done on their side. The new git repos are create and 
we are entrusted to do the migration ourselves.

Please note that:

1. The new brooklyn* repos are created and visible on the asf site [1]
2. The* mirrors are not yet 
available, but they are expected to be online sometime after 0700 UTC.
3. We won't be able to rewrite history (force push), but since the new 
git repos are empty there is no history, i.e. we have one shot at it! I 
would suggest to plan and review the changes before the first push. Not 
sure how we could organize this, but please be aware of it. The goal is 
to 'rewrite history' and remove the old binaries from the repo.
4. The incubator-brooklyn repo is now read-only (or should be, didn't 
try to push). We can deal with the 13 remaining PRs later.
5. Once we confirm everything being in order and properly advertised we 
can remove the github mirror for incubator-brooklyn (which will remain 
as r/o in the ASF history).

I volunteered us to take ownership of the Jenkins jobs [2], we can fix 
those once the new repos are up.

The mailing lists have been migrated too to (i.e. 
no 'incubator' and all the subscriptions were preserved. You may want to 
adjust your mail filters as necessary. We will also need to adjust the 
site content in the coming days, all obvious and expected things, so 
I'll stop rambling.

Hopefully we will be able to iron out all the kinks in the coming days 
and keep the unavoidable disruption to a minimum. If you need immediate 
help from me, you should also have my cell phone number. Please feel 
free to use it.
