Subject Mwiki possible name change.
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2013 20:09:35 GMT

I want to inform the community about an ongoing discussion in Infra
regarding the use of "" or ""

Background: We decided sometime ago to let me upgrade mwiki, which I did,
with great help from many in here.

After that there has been a relatively high load on the VM (very positive)
and bi-daily kernel panics due to lack of resources.

It was then decided to make a new VM with a new ubuntu, instead of an
upgrade in place (to get rid of the kernel panic) which I deemed risky due
to the state (and documentation) of the installation.

I have completed the work with the new VM, and we were ready to transfer
the live site.

At that point I learned about plans of using https instead of http.
Infra-root has a policy that all logins (not only for committers) should be
done through https.

Using https, requires a certificate, and the ongoing discussion is whether
"*" is really needed or if "*" would
be ok.

If I have understood the details correctly (sorry for being vague, but I
have not been able to get a clear answer), the users would address https: or and get a response as https: or

I have written/mailed several times that is a legacy, very
important to AOO, and hope it has been understood. The latest discussion
seems to go in the direction of getting a certificate for,
but there are no guarantees.

I have informed infra, that I cannot participate in works that causes a url
name change, without having a green light from the AOO community. Meaning
that I am now just monitoring what happens and not participating.

I am sorry to have partly caused the current situation, I wanted to make a
clean installation to make the VM easier to maintain, had I not done that,
the https discussion would problaly never have surfaced.

I have no deadline for the change, mainly because it is done by others, but
I am convinced that Infra will end with a solution that the community can

Please take this as information, I cannot go into a discussion on behalf of
Infra (I am not infra, but we do have other committers that are infra).

jan I.
