News: Kenai, Netbeans Updates

  • After the previous announcement that kenai.com would be shut down and the email asking you to vacate the place until April 30th
    Hello fellow Project Administrators,
    
    It's with a sad heart that we have to announce that the Kenai.com domain will be shutdown as part of the consolidation of project hosting sites now that Sun is a wholly owned subsidiary of Oracle.
    
    Project Kenai has always existed as two different things: Kenai the infrastructure, and Kenai the website (Kenai.com).  While it has come time to close the domain of Kenai.com, the infrastructure (which is already used under NetBeans.org) will live on to support other domains in the future.
    
    With this decision from Oracle to close the Kenai.com domain, it is now time for project owners to begin the process of migrating their repositories and content over to other locations.  A few things to note as you begin this process:
    [..]
    Any public projects that remain after the 60 day limit (April 2nd 2010) will be removed when the site is turned off.
    
    It has been an amazing ride, and a great pleasure to personally work with so many of you over the last year or so. From the entire Project Kenai Team I want to thank you for all of the feedback, criticisms, and support over our time together.
    
    With much respect,
    The Project Kenai Team
    

    now someone realized the user-base is much stronger than they thought. Making a good decision: Lets move the kenai features into dev.java.net !

    Gentlepeople,
    
    In an effort to get information out to the Kenai community quickly, while trying to manage the integration of our two companies, I think we did a poor job at communicating our plans for Kenai.com to you.  I would like to remedy that now.  Our strategy is simple.  We don't believe it makes sense to continue investing in multiple hosted development sites that are basically doing the same thing.  Our plan is to shut down kenai.com and focus our efforts on java.net as the hosted development community.  We are in the process of migrating java.net to the kenai technology.  This means that any project currently hosted on kenai.com will be able to continue as you are on java.net.  We are still working out the technical details, but the goal is to make this migration as seamless as possible for the current kenai.com projects.  So in the meantime I suggest that you stay put on kenai.com and let us work through the details and get back to you later this month.
    
    Thanks for your feedback and patience.
    
    Ted Farrell
