(This was sent as an email to the Hudson dev and users mailing lists after voting concluded, but I thought it'd be good to post it here as well.)
The vote is closed, and the results are in. More than half of the total votes were from ineligible voters, but the result would have been the same either way. The final result of all eligible...
First, my apologies for the lack of updates on the Hudson/Oracle situation for
the last few weeks. While talks have been ongoing, the holidays have slowed
things down, and we didn't want to send out information that would later turn
out not to be true. We've been waiting for the talks to reach a resolution -
and I believe they now have.
Since the java.net migration problems, Oracle and...
As one of the "men behind the scenes" of the Hudson project, a lot of my contributions tend to be in writing articles or handling infrastructure, anything to ensure folks like Kohsuke can continue to make Hudson great without being distracted by inane system administration tasks. This past week, one of my long-running infrastructure projects has finally "gone live," making downloads of plugins and...

I wanted to give the Hudson community a quick update on the current status of the issues Tyler has discussed in the earlier posts here.
Friday afternoon, Kohsuke, CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey and myself jumped on a conference call with Hudson contributor/Oracle employee Winston Prakash, Oracle manager Denis Tyrell and of course Ted...
Let me be the first to say thank you all for your overwhelming support for
Hudson and the work we've been doing. The Hudson community in general has
always been incredibly supportive and friendly, but the outpouring of support from
friends and users who've not previously spoken up has been awe inspiring.
That said, let's get down to business. As I covered
yesterday there is some
bubbling frustration within the...
There's been a lot of discussion on the new mailing lists as of late regarding some of the infrastructure and ownership of the Hudson project. In case you haven't been following along at home, I'll try to catch you up as impartially as possible.
2009.06.02: After substantial problems with Java.net infrastructure, the
dev community discusses new infrastructure
including SourceForge, Google Code, Kenai, Berlios, GitHub,...
As Kohsuke mentioned in this post, the Java.net migration has caught just about everybody off-guard in the Hudson community.
The tools we use hosted by Java.net are essentially locked from us until further notice (no ETA on the migration) which is, as you might imagine frustrating both for the core developers but hundreds of plugin developers that make Hudson the best damned CI server on...
Monday morning I came into work and discovered that I cannot commit to the Hudson Subversion repository. Initially I wasn't worried — I thought it was just another java.net outage that will resolve itself in a few hours — but a little research a bit later revealed that Hudson was locked down and being migrated to new java.net infrastructure.
I and the whole community was...
