Joomla! Forge Down?

Post by l_mahoney » Fri Mar 02, 2007 6:02 pm

I am unable to reach the forge site. Is this related to the slowness issues mentioned in other posts of this forum? I want to download the newest version of Joomla!. I tried the links in other posts but without success. Any one know where I can get the latest version?

Thanks

have to agree with you. I think it is now clear to all that either SFEE or VA's own hosting is not upto the task. I would assume the former as VA manage many busy sites so it must be that SFEE really isnt that enterprise. Not a great advert for it in my humble opinion

Does the forge run on a VA hosted platform?  If so, are there alternative companies/platforms that have a better solution?  This is annoying!

yes i does.i really woul not have wasted my words saying it otherwise.

personaly I think it is lousy publicity for VA and SFEE that it is always down and they just dont appear to know how to fix it.

glad its not me paying the bill

I find it embarrassing on behalf of the Joomla community that the forge have so much "downtime/slowness".  :-[

But, then again, the forge have been very slow from the start, and I can't help thinking why they selected to go with this system instead of the same, or more like the "old Mambo" forge which was much faster, much more user friendly etc.

Well, with that in mind I think we can safely say this is not the case in the current configuration. This means it is time to seriously consider moving away from the chosen solution. The community is largely dependent on the availability of the forge or at least offer an alternative during the time VA and or SFEE tries to get things on track. This includes the availability of current releases as well as SVN. Within the RSGallery2 project we already considered the option of SVN mirroring, to guarantee SVN availability.

What I would like to see is some kind of "official" response from the Joomla team about the steps beeing taken to overcome this problem. It is in the interest of the whole community to have a stable and accessible forge, so this should be on someones priority list.

I've taken to having a zip drive full of extensions when I go to meet clients nowadays.

After being caught three or four times saying something like:

"Joomla's a good solution for your company. Let me show you this great plugin.....  errr.... :-[ maybe later..."

For what its worth, MamboXchange seems to be having similar or worse problems

Okay, I've had no problems with the forge (svn) at all, that is...until today!
I update from Joomla trunk via svn daily, and this is the first time I've had
problems. My last update was on the 7th.
The last time I experienced any problems was well over a month
ago, and seemed to be fixed in a few hours.

Code: Select all

PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repos/joomla/trunk'
PROPFIND of '/svn/repos/joomla/trunk': 500 Internal Server Error (http://scm.joomla.org)
they need to upgrade their PC/XT hardware
lol haha

Hope this is fixed soon.

I'm usually quite patient but this is getting  >:( >:( >:( !
I'm seriously considering to move my projects to sourceforge.net.
Any thoughts? Are there other similar sites that host open source?

soureforge.net is pretty much your only option. Downside is that it is also operated by VA

So far I've only used it to download packages, but if so many people use it, it can't be that bad I suppose. Are they even the same people as the ones that host forge.joomla.org, or is VA so large that the sourceforge.net and the SFEE people never talk to each other?

It works and it works fine.

What I mean is that we already have the extensions site and the forge, a really huge effort for a project like Joomla!. It´s easy for users to view and download extensions from a single point. From a developer´s point of view, IMO, it´s a really nice option.

Tonie said that they are working on it. Google could be a temporary solution or a backup.

I'd be interested to see what google code is like, anyone tried it yet (even just for svn backups)?

There is some Joomla related stuff already there...

Joomlaboard is hosted there, no problems so far, I prefer it a lot above j! forge: it's more basic and project members need to have a gmail (not just google) account, but it's a lot more reliable, faster and easier then j! forge.

During the night (daytime for americans) it's a bit slower for svn though, commits can take about a minute from time to time. I'm confident google will improve that :).
