The next release and kenai moving

I’m finally going to do a release of retepTools and retepMicroKernel this weekend, mainly due to it being a 3 day weekend here in the UK.

However, this weekend are moving datacentres, as part of Oracle’s slow consumption of Sun.

So the plan is going to be:

  1. Friday – No updates on the site (see below)
  2. Saturday – prepare retepTools then release
  3. Sunday – prepare retepMicroKernel then release
  4. Monday – any remaining cleanup

This will leave me with the Monday to tidy up. With kenai moving, the release will be done against the bitbucket mercurial repositories as the kenai ones will be unavailable (see below). When kenai have completed their move then I’ll sync the kenai repositories so they are back in sync.

Then I’ll be able to concentrate on the next release which will be primarily to get the artifacts deployed within maven central.

Finally, here’s the notification of this weekends migration over at

We’re Moving!

Kenai is moving from our old home into new digs. As part of the transition, we need to move quite a bit of data, which presents us with some interesting challenges.

On Friday (April 30th) @07:00 UTC, will be placed into a VIRTUAL READ-ONLY transitional mode. What does this mean?

1. SCM systems will be down, and not accessible.
2. Bug-tracking systems will be down, and not accessible.
3. Instant Messaging (IM) will continue to function.
4. Mailing lists will continue to function, but no email will be archived during this time.
5. The main website will be up, but with the following caveats:
* Project creation will be disabled.
* Account creation will be disabled.
* Any modifications to data, made during this transitional period, will be lost when we finally cut over to the new site.

It’s worth repeating : The websites will be up, but any changes made during the transitional period WILL NOT CARRY THROUGH AFTER CUTTING OVER TO THE NEW SITE.

We realize that this has the potential to cause some confusion, so for the duration of the transitional period, the website will sport a clear warning banner on every page.

Thank you for your participation in and loyalty with

Our very best,
The Team
