New repository and release delay

A quick message for all those who have been asking – I have started the GeoServer 2.8 release process but have run into a snag. The repo.boundlessgeo.com maven repository has been slowed down due to increased network traffic. We are setting up a replacement (cloud hosted which will allow allow more developers to manage).

What I would like to ask is for developers to try it out by adding the following to maven settings.xml:

  <mirrors>
    <mirror>
      <id>boundlessgeo</id>
      <name>Boundless Cloud Repository</name>
      <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/main</url>
      <mirrorOf>boundless</mirrorOf>
    </mirror>
  </mirrors>

Please try the above and report back to geoserver-devel, and we can cut over to the new repository tomorrow.

Thank you for your assistance, and please accept our apologies for the delay in releasing 2.8.0.

Update: We have now migrated to the new repository.

Maven Developers

For developers using maven to depend on geoserver jars (for those running a custom geoserver build) please note that we have now migrated to the new repository.

The repository details have not changed:

  <repository>
   <id>boundless</id>
   <name>Boundless Maven Repository</name>
   <url>http://repo.boundlessgeo.com/main/</url>
  </repository>

The exception is for projects (such as GeoWebCache, GeoFence, GeoScript) that deploy artifacts. We ask you to change your distributionManagement section to the following:

<distributionManagement>
  <repository>
   <id>boundless</id>
   <name>Boundless Release Repository</name>
   <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/release/</url>
   <uniqueVersion>false</uniqueVersion>
  </repository>
  <snapshotRepository>
   <id>boundless</id>
   <uniqueVersion>false</uniqueVersion>
   <name>Boundless Snapshot Repository</name>
   <url>https://boundless.artifactoryonline.com/boundless/snapshot/</url>
  </snapshotRepository>
 </distributionManagement>

Contact geoserver-devel if you have any questions.
