How we deploy gitorious.org

We’ve just written an article on our documentation site describing the configuration of our new servers.  You will find details about how we do deployment, our web server setup and how we manage processes. Have a look if you’re into that kind of thing, and post a comment here if there are other things you’d like […]

Gitorious 2.4.1 was just released

Thanks to Steffen Forkmann the first patch release after 2.4.0 came really quickly this time. There was a bug in the 2.4.0 code preventing push from functioning properly. We just pushed 2.4.1 and updated the master and next branches with this fix. You should upgrade your server as soon as possible.

Gitorious 2.4.0 was just released

Update: Version 2.4.1 was just released; the upgrade instructions have been updated to use this version instead. We just pushed version 2.4.0 of Gitorious.

We’re making some changes in how Gitorious […]

Rails 3 progress

Quick update: Gitorious is now running Rails 3.2.8 and all tests are passing. There are still a few minor “TODO”‘s left to tackle, but we’ll be upgrading our internal dogfooding server on Monday. When it’s running smoothly, we’ll get back to the UI upgrade. We’re a bit behind schedule as I forgot to account for […]

Rails 3 upgrade

After a week of working on the Rails 3 upgrade, this is the current status: 3358 tests, 4712 assertions, 5 failures, 0 errors. That’s pretty close, and may I say, pretty exciting to us. Once the last 5 test failures have been fixed, there are still some aspects of the application that needs to be […]
