is dead - long live kenai (under different name)

Even got this email: 

"In an effort to get information out to the Kenai community quickly, while trying to manage the integration of our two companies, I think we did a poor job at communicating our plans for to you.  I would like to remedy that now.  Our strategy is simple.  We don't believe it makes sense to continue investing in multiple hosted development sites that are basically doing the same thing.  Our plan is to shut down and focus our efforts on as the hosted development community.  We are in the process of migrating to the kenai technology.  This means that any project currently hosted on will be able to continue as you are on  We are still working out the technical details, but the goal is to make this migration as seamless as possible for the current projects.  So in the meantime I suggest that you stay put on and let us work through the details and get back to you later this month. 

Thanks for your feedback and patience."

These are actually great news. Hopefully all the infrastructure like mercurial (subversion isn't fun), jira and hudson will be supported by So I'm waiting with the migration of "Real World Java EE Patterns" project and will even commit some more content soon. The great story about mercurial: the whole repository with history etc. sits on my machine and can be pushed wherever I want :-). is/was an interesting platform - suitable not only for opensource projects.
