Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Migrating to the New Incubator Website
Date Wed, 05 Jul 2017 22:44:52 GMT
It seems the discussion has died down.  I'm going to plan to finalize the
last few parts, make the jenkins job also build the legacy bits and move to
the new site sometime next week.

I'll drop a mail when I have the last of it staged and ready to go.

John
