Add-ons site upgrade - planned downtime

Unread postby Moonchild » Sun, 10 Feb 2019, 16:09

On Saturday February 16th at 00:00 UTC, we will start our upgrade process for the add-ons site to a fully self-serve in-house-written website, Phoebus 2.0.

This upgrade involves a complete changeover of software and how extensions are stored and handled.
Future updates by extension developers will be done through a web interface.

At the stated time, the FTP server will be shut down and no further updates to extensions will be possible through FTP from that point forward.
Availability of the add-ons site may be spotty during the upgrade process which may take the entire weekend to complete -- Tobin, the author of the site software and chief responsible for this upgrade, will be posting to this thread when there are updates of note and when the transition is complete.

FTP was shutdown an hour ago.. I have switched the live sites over to the TRUNK code before I do a final sign off and merge into RELEASE and LIVE branches.

Current status is: The Pale Moon, Basilisk, and Interlink Add-ons Sites are online for the rest of the night. The Phoebus Panel is currently disabled in case another SQL migration run needs done between now and later on Saturday.

Dictionaries currently redirects to Thunderbird's Add-ons Site but we will have our own set of forked dictionaries some 70+ of them in the VERY near future, just not this weekend.

I do, however, welcome your comments in this thread. I shall try really REALLY hard not to overreact to negative ones ;)

Reminder: Service can and will be spotty as I make final adjustments.
