 Description  « Hide

Kenai.com is supposed to be superseded by the new Java.net infrastructure.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.
