Well having tried various PHP content management systems on retep.org I’ve just about had enough. I was trying Liferay as well (and that was looking good), but in the end I was spending way too much time on getting things working rather than getting down to coding I’ve decided to move back to using one of the “forges” out there.
The other reason was cost – running a dedicated server was just costing too much each month.
Anyhow I’ve going to move everything over to Project Kenai provided by Sun. It’s supports Mercurial, Forums a Wiki and more importantly Jira.
RetepTools is now over and it’s project page is now http://kenai.com/projects/reteptools, and Jira is now up to date with what was in Mantis.
I’ll be moving the MicroKernel over later tonight and I’ll be deciding on how to migrate the other projects over with the intention of shutting down the old site at the weekend. The one thing I have left to sort is getting a working Maven repository working. I’m not the only one using that site and want Maven so hopefully it wont be long (the main requestors are the ODFToolkit team).
Anyhow one this process is complete then this blog will be moving to become the main retep.org homepage.
