OpenMW code, bug tracker, and wiki are now on GitLab!

Post by Thunderforge » 19 Jun 2018, 04:20

One pain point for OpenMW has been that contributing means signing up for multiple accounts. Notably, our repository, bug tracker, and wiki are on completely separate servers with separate login processes. Additionally, some developers prefer GitHub due to its popularity and some prefer GitLab due to it being open source, just like this project. So we're reorganizing tools to make contributing easier.

Starting today, OpenMW code will be available on GitLab while being bidirectionally mirrored with GitHub. This means that our open source project is now hosted on an open source platform, while still allowing the countless GitHub contributors who have submitted code over the years to continue to do so on that platform if they choose. In addition, our Redmine issue tracker has been retired and all the issues have been migrated to GitLab. Our wiki is still in the process of being migrated, but will be hosted on GitLab as well. This allows everyone to use a single account for tracking issues, contributing code, and writing wiki documentation.

We hope that this will make the process of contributing to OpenMW better for everyone, and look forward to all sorts of new contributions!

Big thanks to psi29a's amazing work, also to Zini and all other people for setting this up so quickly. It's really much better this way.

Is it a manual process to sync the repos or is that automated, too?

The repos are easy, git clone... done.

Redmine to GL is more interesting. I tried other tools, but they were old and broken. I've re-written a lot of stuff and will post what I used to automate the migration online.

The main webpage still says "Fork me on GitHub" on the upper right hand side.

Which is fine. :) We'll eventually change it, but nothing is broken and you can still fork on GitHub. Use the tool that's right for you.

I previously clicked on the "Bugs" link (between Team and Wiki) to easily see the state of the next version of OpenMW, but now that link goes directly to the gitlab page.

How can I see the progress now? the way it was before it was very easy to read, with a progress bar and the still open and closed bugs of each version of OpenMW.

EDIT: shit, I just saw more or less the same thing on "Issues>Milestones". Never mind.
