Firebird's Jira Tracker is now restored on the new VM, with data up to 5 December 2009. However, we have lost attachments from the last two years. Missing ticket headers from after Dec 5 will need to be reconstructed from notification messages.

The version of Jira is slightly newer than we had before, although it is not V.4.x, due to platform problems with the Tomcat layer. We now have some new features, including FishEye integration, already configured for the CORE project. Some reporting plug-ins may be missing: if so, it will take some forensics to detect which ones they were and whether they are compatible with the new setup. The Subversion and CVS integration plug-ins are installed and working.

Note that the URL is temporarily slightly different to what it was previously, so your old bookmark won't work properly. Once the re-licensing issues are sorted out, the URL will revert to the previous one.

This has been a difficult recovery. In short, we just didn't have the failure protection we thought we had and we failed to cover the unannounced disappearance of the project worker who set up Jira originally. The recovery task was achieved thanks to the huge effort and dedication of Pavel Cisar, who took on the task a month ago, single-handedly, as a "greenie". Some steps still remain to be done but the Tracker is open for business!

Sorry to say, the Project still has no Tracker and no news mirror.

If you have bugs to report, either in existing releases or in the V.2.5 first release candidate, please post your report to the Firebird-devel list.

For now, if you find broken links on this website (other than those to the dead servers) then please feel free to inform us via a message to the Firebird-website or the Firebird-general list.

Thanks to the progressive death of the NAS server from which all our Internet facilities are served, we lost everything — Tracker, website, Wiki and news mirrors — piece-by-piece over the past days.

By gargantuan effort, Sean Leyne and his colleagues at Broadview have been reconstructing our infrastructure from scratch. The main website is up (obviously!). Others are more challenging, requiring radical reconstruction using new versions of underlying software, and will take time.

For now, if you find broken links (other than those to our other servers) then please feel free to inform us via a message to the Firebird-general list.

More info as it comes to light.
