Infrastructure News

Service relaunch: archives.gentoo.org

Thanks to our awesome infrastructure team, the archives.gentoo.org website is back online. Below is the announcement as posted on the gentoo-announce mailing list by Robin H. Johnson.

The Gentoo Infrastructure team is proud to announce that we have
re-engineered the mailing list archives, and re-launched it, back at archives.gentoo.org.
The prior Mhonarc-based system had numerous problems, and a
complete revamp was deemed the best forward solution to move
forward with. The new system is powered by ElasticSearch
(more features to come).

All existing URLs should either work directly, or redirect you to the new location for that content.

Major thanks to a3li, for his development of this project. Note
that we're still doing some catchup on newer messages, but delays will drop to under 2 hours soon,
with an eventual goal of under 3 minutes.

Please report problems to Bugzilla: Product Websites, Component
