Added by Alexander Bugl 17 days ago

What will happen:

  • upgrade of the Subversion server svn.zmaw.de
  • renaming of the Subversion server svn.zmaw.de to svn.mpimet.mpg.de

When?

  • Tuesday, April 10th, 8 am - 9:30 am

Who/What is affected:

  • Subversion on the server has been upgraded to v1.8
  • The machine has been renamed to svn.mpimet.mpg.de

What to do after the maintenance:

If you are still using SVN repositories, then you should prepare them for future use:
  • You might need to accept a new SSL server certificate after svn commands:
    $ svn update
    Updating '.':
    Error validating server certificate for 'https://svn.zmaw.de:443':
     - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
       fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
    Certificate information:
     - Hostname: svn.mpimet.mpg.de
     - Valid: from Apr  6 12:26:43 2018 GMT until Jul  9 12:26:43 2020 GMT
     - Issuer: Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Muenchen, Bayern, DE
     - Fingerprint: 87:7E:34:73:AC:47:C8:0A:CA:D1:48:27:90:B9:2F:DB:8F:31:29:2C
    
  • The repositories might need to be upgraded:
    $ svn upgrade
    
  • if you are still using SVN repositories, then these repositories might need to be relocated using svn relocate after the maintenance, e.g. for repository libmtime:
    $ svn relocate https://svn.mpimet.mpg.de/svn/libmtime
