Rolling Upgrades of Subversion Repositories on Monday, October 29th Starting at 15:00 UTC (completed)

Posted by prencher Oct 26, 2012 at 15:18 UTC

Hi guys,

About a month ago we upgraded to Subversion 1.7. On Monday, we will be doing rolling upgrades of all of our Subversion repositories to the latest on disk format. There will be no overall interruption of service, although specific repositories will be unavailable while they are being upgraded.

This will give access to the latest Subversion features for all repositories.

We will be starting this process at 15:00 UTC and expect it to take around 10 hours to upgrade all repositories.

Note: If you attempt to access your repository while it is being upgraded, it will fail.

Subversion Rollbacks for a Subset of Repositories

Posted by prencher Nov 07, 2012 at 18:32 UTC

Due to some unforseen complications during a routine maintenance, we've had to temporarily disable access to subversion repositories in order to do rollbacks on a subset of repositories.

Update 12:42am CST / 06:42 UTC:

All affected repositories have been restored to their latest backups from this sunday and access to repositories have been restored. Unfortunately, that is the most recent backup we have where we know the issue not to be present. All affected repositories have had their UUID changed, so you will have to do a fresh checkout. This was done to prevent any corruption of server side repositories, due to limitations in how svn handles revisions.

The easiest way to restore any commits made since sunday is take your old checkout, remove the .svn folder(s) and copy it on top of the fresh checkout, and then commit it.

We're very sorry about this situation, and are still investigating what went wrong during the maintenance to cause this.

Repository Hosting Restored

Posted by prencher Sep 18, 2013 at 23:15 UTC

Earlier today, we migrated to a shiny new stack on shiny new servers. As part of this, we're also migrating the repository services, which will remain offline for a little while longer.

Not to worry, your repositories are safe and sound, we're just doing the repository server move out of band of the main migration.

I'll update this post once repository services are back online.

Update: Repo services have been restored.

Store Offline for Maintenance

Hi all,

We've taken the store offline for maintenance. Don't worry, this has no effect on your points or your orders. It will be back online later today.

New Store Launched

Posted by Kaelten Oct 10, 2013 at 02:00 UTC

Hi Everyone,

Today we launch our new store! This is the first in a series of releases that will revamp the whole of CurseForge and all the sites powered by it. Through this we'll be modernizing the layout and style of the sites as well as addressing the long standing concerns many of our authors have had.

It's important to know that many actions related to points need to be completed from within the new store. Purchasing points, viewing your totals and history, as well as transferring points to other users. Project reward splits are still configured on the current site.

Below you'll find a nice screenshot of the general layout of the new store. We already have a list of improvements for the next iteration. You have my word that they'll be here soon, but please give us your feedback as well. We'd love to know what you guys think.

The new store can be found at store.curseforge.com.
