TimelinePlease note the following timeline:
- 19th October 2012: Announce deprecation using a banner on the bugs.typo3.org website.
- 1st December 2012: Creation of new issues will be disabled. Existing issues can still be updated.
We will add a note on all tickets that inform about the discontinued support and link to the proper page on forge.typo3.org (in case a project exists there).
- 1st January 2014 (planned): bugs.typo3.org will be completely shut down
Background informationA long time ago forge.typo3.org (based on Redmine) was introduced as a replacement for the bug tracker at bugs.typo3.org (based on Mantis). The main advantage of Redmine is that it is not just an issue tracker, but also allows per-project repositories, wikis, etc.
TYPO3 CMS and most active projects/extensions have already moved to the forge platform about one-and-a-half years ago. As the server team wants to keep the burden of maintanance as low as possible and because two issue trackers for one community is one too much, we have decided to phase out the support of bugs.typo3.org. An automatic migration of all open issues is unfortunately not possible. In case you have any questions, please contact us through admin(at)typo3.org Your TYPO3 Server Admin Team
