Subject RE: allura instance at Apache is UP

Remember that as an incubating project you must be certain to
communicate this. One way this is done is by having all your web
resources at

In your case there is a good reason to move to the allura instance but
please be sure to adequately communicate the incubation status.

It would also be good to update (which still shows
Sourceforge resources.

Subject: Re: allura instance at Apache is UP
Acting on lazy consensus, I've started to fill out the project menu by adding
several external links until content is moved.  ( is a good read on lazy

Any update on inbound & outbound email, Tim?

I also have noticed that frequently says "The
metadata for this repository is missing. To fix, please try a refresh." and a
refresh fixes it, but then it comes back (presumably after cron pulls in new
commits).  So that's something else to put on our TODO list :)
