Migration of source code repositories to GitHub (15 September 2015)
The previous workflow for code contributions remains unchanged. In addition to this, we will accept pull requests on GitHub for now. However, we reserve the right to change our minds if we don’t like the pull request workflow.
Mirroring of historical Subversion repositories on GitHub, possible move of current Mercurial repositories to GitHub (06 September 2015)
We plan to mirror parts of our historical Subversion repository on GitHub. In order to do a proper conversion from Subversion to Git, Subversion author names must be mapped to name-email pairs. An initial set of mappings is available at the bottom of the Source Control page. If you notice errors or omissions, feel free to send us changes or pull requests for the website sources.
Additionally, we’re considering a move of our main repositories to GitHub. This is being discussed on the core mailing list.
Migration of Jikes RVM User Guide (14 August 2015)
The user guide, which was previously exported from Confluence, has been rewritten in LaTeX. It is now exported to HTML with tex4ht and available at the normal user guide link. As a result of this change, the organisation of the user guide pages and the links have changed. Please update your boomarks.
If you notice problems in the new user guide, please open an issue or contact us on the mailing lists. If you want to make changes to the website yourself, take a look at this GitHub repository. To get your changes applied, send us patches or open a pull request at GitHub.
If you need access to the old user guide as exported from Confluence, see here.
Migration of Jikes RVM JIRA (31 March 2015)
Due to the approaching shutdown of Codehaus.org at the end of April, we have migrated the JIRA used for Jikes RVM project issue tracking to a new location: https://xtenlang.atlassian.net/projects/RVM.
The new JIRA is now fully operational and should be used for all Jikes RVM issues.
Userids were migrated from the old JIRA at Codehaus to the new one, but for security reasons passwords were not migrated. If you had a userid in the old JIRA, please use the password reset mechanism to set a password in the new Jikes RVM JIRA instance. If that doesn’t work, please contact David Grove (firstname.lastname@example.org) to make sure your userid in the new JIRA is associated with the correct email account to enable the password reset to work. The research archive was always hosted at sourceforge (not codehaus) and has therefore not been migrated.
