--- Required Resources - Mailing lists - dev - issues - users - private - commits - announce - breakage (see http://subversion.tigris.org/ds/viewForumSummary.do?dsForumId=552) - We will work with the Infrastructure team to transfer the subscriber listings to the new destinations. - Subversion: - We have not made a decision whether we prefer Subversion should be imported into the main ASF Subversion repository or be hosted as a separate repository to enable early testing of the repository code. We intend to discuss this during the Incubation process before the code is imported. It is also understood that ASF infrastructure team may be willing to run custom pre-release Subversion server builds for the entire ASF, so this separate repository option may not be required. - The Subversion source code can be found at: http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/. - Issue tracking - We haven't made a decision between JIRA or Bugzilla at this time and expect this decision to be made as part of the Incubation process. Our current issue tracking system uses Issuezilla (a fork of Bugzilla) and we have not yet decided whether we want to import our previous issues into the new system and will decide this in the course of the Incubation process. - Our current issue tracker is at http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html. - Buildbot - We currently use buildbot across a number of platforms and configurations for automated builds and testing. Over time, we would like to migrate these services to Apache infrastructure where appropriate. - Our current buildbot master is at http://buildbot.subversion.org/buildbot/ Note that we request these resources to be at their final locations, not an intermediary while going through incubation. The cost of switching twice would otherwise be significant due to the size of the existing community. The Subversion team members are happy to work with and assist the ASF Infrastructure team to enable early deployments of its release candidates if possible.
