Asterisk Announces 7 Comments

On June 5, 2011, we migrated from Mantis to Jira as the issue tracker for Asterisk [1]. We temporarily left Mantis running in read-only mode to smooth the transition. At 15 months, temporary has turned into semi-permanent. As a part of other infrastructure changes we are making to the community services, we will finally shut down Mantis for good.

We will update our DNS servers on the morning of Tuesday, August 28th, however it may take a few hours for those changes to propagate.

We have done our best to put redirects in place so that old links to Mantis will still work. If you find a link that does not redirect as expected, or have any other problems you think may be caused by the Mantis shutdown, please report them in the “JIRA Help” project [2]. If you would rather report your issue via email, you may contact us at asteriskteam@digium.com.

  • Guys,

    Is it possible to leave the Mantis on permanently?

    It allows to productively search and work with issues recorded in it. Search, convenient straight forward layout, patch download URLs, everything just works there.

    JIRA maybe is convenient for the management and developers. I just guess, as somebody must have loved it so it was chosen as a Mantis replacement. But for an ordinary user (in my opinion) it is cumbersome and unfriendly.

    Thank you, Vladimir

  • I can understand Digium not wanting to spend time, money and effort, which is understandable.

    Thinking out loud, if the open source community still see value in the old mantis data, could we not hand it over for somebody else to manage?
    I’m sure we could find somebody to donate the bandwidth.

  • I hate JIRA.

    When the change to JIRA happened, we lost the emailed bug reports, these were a heads up. With JIRA then you had to search for problems.

    The emails have just recently returned, yeah.

    As a developer/committer, I also agree.

  • Paul,

    What kind of resources are we talking about? How big is the database?
    What is the approximate bandwidth consumption?

    Thank you, Vladimir
