Some info should be posted about plans (or lack of them) to migrate Kenai.com to Java.net

    Details

      Description

      Kenai.com is supposed to be superseded by the new Java.net infrastructure. Months ago, some comments were made about plans to provide tools to ease migration from Kenai.com to Java.net, but no other news have happened since then. There is some uncertainty about this, so it would be nice that a post were published in both Kenai.com and Java.net making clear these points:

      1) Is there any schedule to shutdown Kenai.com?

      2) Is Kenai.com still receiving maintenance and/or operators time?

      3) Is there any plan to migrate Kenai.com projects, especially the contents other than in SCM repositories (like wikis, blogs, forums, etc.)?

      4) If the answer to 3) is No or there is no schedule for it, are there any hints to manually migrate the projects from Kenai.com to Java.net?

      In my case, I have a project in Kenai.com that currently uses just a Mercurial repo and the downloads section, but now I need to set up a wiki for docs. As migrating the wiki would be a manual task and I could have difficulties keeping track of the images to be migrated, I'd rather know if it is better to migrate to Jave.net or stay at Kenai.com.

        Just after creating this issue I have found this thread in Java.net forums:

        http://www.java.net/forum/topic/site-help/migrating-project-kenaicom-javanet

        I guess it answers some of the points outlined in the description:

        1) No schedule yet. It seems that Keani.com will be alive at least until 2014.

        2) IIUC, yes, its stack is receiving updated at the same time Java.net does.

        3) Not yet, and people won't be able to start seriously looking at it before, probably, 2014.

        4) No hints for manual migration. Owners of projects based at Kenai.com are welcomed to migrate the content themselves to Java.net (or even to keep the sister projects in sync both in Kenai.com and Java.net)

        Still, I feel (and other participants in them mentioned forum thread too) that a post in Kenai.com with this information is much desired. Probably just copying and pasting the questions and answers in this issue with a "Q & A regarding Kenai.com migration to Java.net" title would be enough.
