New Server for OSGi

The OSGi Alliance had been using a dedicated server for various functions for many years. But it was getting to be too old to continue to be used. It was running RHEL 4 and I could not find a Java 7 binary for that and I was not interested in trying to compile OpenJDK from source!

So this past week, I migrated and upgraded the various services ( and websites, bugzilla systems, hudson build system, mailman mail lists, git and subversion repositories, ldap user database) from the old server to a shiny new server. I even able to install Java 7.

Most people probably did not notice the migration as the websites were only down for about 10 minutes while the ip addresses were switched between servers.

So hopefully, the OSGi community can enjoy our new server for a number of years to come.
