Migration From dev.java.net

Issue tracker migration

Due to lack of features, poor performance and outages, we are migrating our Issue Tracker from java.net Issuezilla to a JIRA instance.

Volunteer Mike Vorburger did this. References:



Subversion migration checklist

Due to an old SVN version, poor performance and outages, we migrated our Subversion repository from java.net to SourceForge.


  • set up backups of new repo
  • block commits at old (java.net) repo


  • request dump of java.net mifos repository from Eric Renaud (CollabNet)
    • used svnsync to pull down full mirror instead. Currently on birch at ~adamm/svn_mirror/mifos
      • svnsync init file://$HOME/svn_mirror/mifos https://mifos.dev.java.net/svn/mifos
      • create mostly empty (but executable) $HOME/svn_mirror/mifos/hooks/pre-revprop-change script
      • svnsync sync file://$HOME/svn_mirror/mifos
  • upload dump from java net on sourceforge
  • disable commit permissions on java.net to prevent commits to the old repository
  • resolve http://sf.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/ticket/5746
  • point Hudson to the new subversion repo
  • have active committers sign up on sourceforge and get commit rights
    • John Woodlock, Keith Woodlock
    • Keith Randall
    • Udai Gupta
    • Sungard: Chandan Rao,
    • Keith Pierce
    • Adam Monsen, Adam Feuer, Adam Monsen, Van Mittal-Henkle, Jeff Brewster, Ryan Whitney
    • Johan Hilding
    • Kimloan Ho
    • Pootle auto-commit user
  • instruct anyone with a checkout to svn switch --relocate to the new repo
  • migrate merge tracking information
    • keep using svnmerge for now... we'll likely migrate to Mercurial instead of using built-in SVN merging
  • point mifos.org and other links to java.net svn to sourceforge svn
  • create "mifospootle" user on sourceforge
  • enable commit emails using a hook script
  • if using a new commit email alias, update mifoscommits google group and mifos.scm on gmane
  • connect with http://cia.vc
  • update fisheye url to http://fisheye3.atlassian.com/browse/mifos
