<h3>2018-10-12 <em>Intent to remove unused projects</em></h3>
<p>
As per <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/pipermail/clo-devel/2018-October/001253.html">the announcement</a>,
the site admins plan to remove the following list of projects which have been determined to neither
have a project page nor a code repository. Please contact the site admins before October 26, 2018 to
cancel project cleanup in case your project is wrongfully listed.

<h3>2018-10-12</h3>
<p>
Today I found some time to enable GitLab's 'reply by e-mail' functionality.
</p>
<p>
When you receive a notification e-mail from our GitLab instance, you can now send a reply to that notification. If the notification was from an issue being updated, then your reply will update the issue with a follow-up commont.
</p>
<h3>2018-10-10</h3>
<p>
A new version of Common-Lisp.net has been launched!
</p>
<p>
Among other things, the new site features:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
A site generator implemented in Common Lisp.
</li>
<li>
A gitlab pipeline for automatic deployment.
</li>
<li>
A new responsive design based on Bootstrap and new content.
</li>
</ul>
<h3>2018-10-06</h3>
<p>
As per <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/pipermail/clo-devel/2018-August/001221.html">the announcement in August</a>,
the list of users with O/S level access has been cleaned up: those accounts which haven't been accessed since
2013 (and for which the owner didn't object to removal), have been removed. Home directories will be destructed
to comply with GDPR regulations.
</p>
<p>
If you once had an account and you need your access restored, please contact our admins.
</p>
<h3>2018-02-17</h3>
<p>
The Darcs (a distributed version control system before Git) repositories listed in our darcsweb instance
have been converted to <a href="https://gitlab.common-lisp.net/">our GitLab instance</a>. All use of Darcs on our site
has been marked deprecated for a long time and we're happy to have found a way forward, keeping the
repository content available to more modern VCSes.
</p>
<h3>2017-07-15</h3>
<p>
Our server was upgraded to Stretch as part of the regular life cycle management. See <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/pipermail/clo-devel/2017-July/001166.html">our announcement</a>.
</p>
<h3>2015-05-25</h3>
<p>
Today the system has been declared "CVS clean"! All remnants of CVS have been removed.
</p>
<h3>2015-05-23</h3>
<p>
On Friday, the system had performance problems due to slow I/O. Checking the S.M.A.R.T. parameters of the disks didn't show anything unusual. Today, the disk system reports running in degraded mode, so we ordered the failing disk to be replaced, causing only minor downtime. The disk array has been rebuilt and it's smooth sailing from here again!
</p>
<h3>2015-05-22</h3>
<p>
GitLab upgraded to <a href="https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/blob/v7.11.1/CHANGELOG">GitLab 7.11.1.</a>
</p>
<h3>2015-05-15</h3>
<p>
Proposed approach for <a href="https://mailman-test.common-lisp.net/pipermail/clo-devel/2015-May/001051.html">Darcs repository migration</a> sent out.
</p>
<h3>2015-05-12</h3>

Now that the CVS repositories have been migrated, we'll move to clean up the cvs services from the underlying box and preparations will start to migrate the Darcs repositories on the system. For progress on the Darcs repository migration, watch the <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/listinfo/clo-devel">clo-devel mailing list</a>.

<p>
The next batch of CVS projects has been migrated. None of the projects opted to move to Subversion, so all of them were migrated to Git+GitLab:

GitLab has been upgraded to 7.10.0; <a href="https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/issues/1408">one of the tickets we filed with the GitLab project</a>, has been resolved now.
</p>
<h3>2015-04-19</h3>
<p>
Migration of CVS repositories to Git+GitLab has started. The first batch (10 projects) was converted:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
anaphora
</li>
<li>
aspiwork-pdm
</li>
<li>
bayescl
</li>
<li>
beep
</li>
<li>
beirc

<li>
cello
</li>
<li>
cells
</li>
<li>
cells-gtk
</li>
<li>
cells-ode
</li>
</ul>
<p>
In total there are 120 CVS repositories to convert. Project members receive an announcement mail in advance. CVS repositories which are left behind after conversion to another VC will be skipped and projects which are in such a situation are kindly requested to notify the admins of such situation - or even better: clean it up before the admins run into it. Now is your chance! :-)
</p>
<h3>2015-04-17</h3>
<p>
<a href="https://gitlab.common-lisp.net/">GitLab</a> upgraded to <a href="https://about.gitlab.com/2015/04/15/gitlab-7-dot-9-4-released/">7.9.4</a>
</p>
<h3>2015-04-11</h3>
<p>
The first projects with CVS repositories have received e-mails about the planned migration according to the <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/pipermail/clo-devel/2015-April/001035.html">proposed procedure</a>. We're going in batches, using aphabetical order, so you may not have received e-mail for your projects yet. Don't dispair, it'll come!
</p>
<p>
The announcement e-mail requires action <em>if you want to migrate to Subversion instead of to Git</em>. If you want to migrate to Git+<a href="https://gitlab.common-lisp.net/">GitLab</a>, there's no need to respond. It's the default.
</p>
<p>
If you want to declare that your project wants to migrate to Subversion without awaiting your announcement e-mail, please <a href="https://trac.common-lisp.net/clo/newticket">file a ticket in the site's Trac instance</a>.
</p>
<h3>2015-04-08</h3>
<p>
Due to a variety of reasons, the history of the mailing lists of common-lisp.net had spread over a number of sources:
</p>
<ul>
<li>
the older system's mailman list manager's history (mbox format)
</li>
<li>
the intermediately used mlmmj list manager's history (spool directory, individual mails)
</li>
<li>
the new system's mailman list manager's history (mbox format)
</li>
</ul>
<p>
With only the archives from the last bullet hosted in viewable form, valuable Common Lisp history and coding advice collected over the years has been unavailable for at least 9 months.
</p>
<p>
Now, this long-overdue task has finally been completed. The mailing list history can be browsed and indexed again from <a href="https://mailman.common-lisp.net/pipermail">the online archive</a>
</p>
<h3>2015-03-27</h3>
<p>
Today we enabled project imports from GitHub. Should you want to import your project (which should import both the repository and the issues) into gitlab, please check out <a href="http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/workflow/import_projects_from_github.html">gitlab documentation for the github import workflow</a>.
</p>
<p>
As part of the effort to enable GitHub imports, we had to do a minor GitLab upgrade. The current hosted GitLab version is now 7.9.1.
</p>
<p>
Another part of enabling GitHub imports was to allow users to log in on our site using their GitHub credentials. Please note that this will <em>only</em> work for those who already have a valid (i.e. pre-existing and confirmed) GitLab account. If you want to use this option (which is also available for Google accounts), please check the <a href="http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/integration/omniauth.html#enable-omniauth-for-an-existing-user">GitLab omniauth for existing users documentation</a>.
</p>
<h3>2015-03-24</h3>
<p>
GitLab upgraded to 7.9.0. GitLab released its newest version (7.9.0) on the Sunday after the Friday we went live with our self-hosted GitLab (7.8.4 -- then latest). The release contains a <a href="https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/blob/v7.9.0/CHANGELOG">large number of fixes and enhancements</a>.
</p>
<h3>2015-03-20</h3>
<p>
Our self-hosted git repository management environment <a href="https://gitlab.common-lisp.net/">gitlab.common-lisp.net</a> is now live! During the deployment, the system was seeded with 390 users, 434 groups and 210 repositories.
