Description

When the BugZilla migration is going on, we need to switch the DNS entry for bugs.libreoffice.org to our production box, verifying TTL is set to a low value
Please coordinate with infra a few days before the planned migration on that

edit: bugs.libreoffice.org, not bugs.bugzilla.org

Bug #830: Create DNS entry for bugs.documentfoundation.orgClosed

History

#1 Updated by Christian Lohmaier over 4 years ago

  • Description updated (diff)

#2 Updated by Robinson Tryon over 4 years ago

  • Subject changed from switch the DNS entry for bugs.bugzilla.org to our production box to switch the DNS entry for bugs.libreoffice.org (bugs.documentfoundation.org ?) to our production box

1) Updated subject line
2) I think there's still an open question about whether the url should be bugs.libreoffice.org or bugs.documentfoundation.org

On the one hand, "bugs.libreoffice.org" is much more guessable for LibreOffice users and is shorter to type.
On the other hand, we have bugs for other products (such as the Android Impress Remote), so taxonomically speaking, it would make more sense for the projects to be organized under a TDF url.

One compromise would be for the canonical url to be "bugs.documentfoundation.org", with "bugs.libreoffice.org" as a redirect, and make the front page say "Bug Tracker for LibreOffice (and other TDF projects)". We could optionally add something like bugs.tdf.io as a short-url redirect.

My take:
Whenever a component can be used for more products in theory, like
BugZilla, let's use the TDF address. Same as with
download.documentfoundation.org instead of download.libreoffice.org

Okay. I'll proceed with the TDF address.

I think that bugs.documentfoundation.org isn't in use yet, so we can point that to the production box even before the migration begins. We'll can switch bugs.libreoffice.org over during the migration itself.

I didn't have on my screen indeed that bugs.libreoffice.org is in use already
My proposal is to use bugs.documentfoundation.org, have bugs.libreoffice.org be an alias/redirect to it

What needs doing:
  • talk to infra about setting up the virtual host
  • likewise for the redirection rules
  • talk to infra for ensuring DNS entries set up, and DNS TTL low (this is important, otherwise the migration will be blocked if DNS TTL is too high!)

I had expected to see a short discussion on the hostname way before migration, there was lots of time. Kicking off a discussion right now is probably too late and will delay endlessly.

These are all done. Both DNS entries have TTL of 300, so it'll take just a few minutes for them to update during the migration phase.

I've added two steps to the migration schedule
1) Move DNS entries to our temp-migration silverstripe page
2) (at the end) Move DNS entries to point to the TDF Bugzilla VM

I think we can close this bug out now.
