RE: [tdf-discuss] user forums ?


The OpenOffice.org Forums were moved onto Apache Servers in the past few days. Oracle was retiring 
the server and the migration had to be done hastily.  Fortunately, the new server had already been 
set up and experimental migrations confirmed.  

The rehosted forums are now UP AND RUNNING AT THEIR ORIGINAL <http://user.services.openoffice.org/> 
URLs.  

Cor and others might have noticed outages during the transition, including the updates needed to 
DNS servers for locating the correct server.

It is correct that there is no German Language Forum.  There certainly could be.  It depends on 
availability of administrators and moderators for operating such a Forum.

DO NOT USE the <http://ooo-forums.apache.org/> URL.  It will work, (mapping to the same service) 
but there may be breakage related to logins and accounts, cookies, and links to non-forum 
locations.  For example, access via <http://user.services.openoffice.org/> has me logged in; access 
via the apache.org URL does not.

I apologize that there was not more visible warning and indication of the changes that were about 
to happen.  Fortunately, the Forums are operating in place as if nothing had changed.  There will 
now be changes to integrate the forums, the wiki (also rehosted), and eventually all of 
<http://openoffice.org> to reflect hosting as a companion of Apache OpenOffice.org.  There should 
be no noticeable change to Forum operation and the extensive archive of Forum topics.

The intention is to be as ecumenical as possible in addressing questions from and supporting all 
users of products having a common heritage with the Sun/Oracle OpenOffice.org projects.  That will 
depend more on who asks questions and who answers them, of course.

Hi,

I noticed that the old users forums from OOo are not available any more.
I was not a frequent visitor, but helped a bit with questions (on the
Dutch language version) now and then. There was a mixture of questions
related to OOo and of course increasingly LibreOffice.

I heard about migration of the old OOo infrastructure to the Apache
project. I guess the forums will be part of that.
Migration has been done : http://ooo-forums.apache.org/
It works for FR forum but I do not know how users will be aware of the
new url.

Best regards.
JBF

Simple fix. Setup a redirect from the old url to the new one if possible.

Regards

Jonathan Aquilina
