A distributed team devoted to serving the needs of the Apache Software Foundation and its projects
Infra supports services for the ASF and its projects, including GitBox, Jira, Confluence, Jenkins, and Buildbot. We also have an extensive toolbox we use on a daily basis that contains both home-brewed solutions and "off the shelf" offerings. Feel free to check them out.
On August 9, 2022 Infra cut over the production LDAP servers to new virtual machines. LDAP configuration (ACLs, etc.) have not changed, but the certificates have. Replacing the ancient, self-signed certificate, Letsencrypt provisions the certificate on the new servers. Please contact Infra if you have any questions about this change.
July 13, 2022: On July 12 an essential part of the Apache email infrastructure failed, interrupting mail delivery throughout the Foundation. The service is active again after a seven-hour outage, as the Infrastructure team accelerated plans to migrate all email services to mailgw, as noted below. A fuller report is available on our blog.
June 15, 2022: As part of the Apache Infrastructure team's goals of modernization and service improvement, we are pleased to announce the general availability of "mailgw", the long-awaited replacement for the venerable Hermes FreeBSD mailing list server. See our mail migration FAQ for further details.
April, 2022: Infra's April Fool's prank, the interactive voice response service, is still available to explore and enjoy at 1-717-7-APACHE (1-717-727-2243).
November, 2021: If you have an ASF email inbox, please review Dealing with spam in your ASF email account. This policy addresses a problem that arises when people see possible spam forwarded from their ASF inbox to their personal email account, and report it as spam.
October, 2021: The ASF has long depended on a network of download mirrors to provide access to projects' product releases. We have now moved to a global content distribution network (CDN). The primary change projects and downloaders will experience is a much shorter delay between when a project posts a new release and when it is available world-wide for download. Read about the history of the ASF download mirror system.
We periodically publish updates about Infra's work, successes, and challenges on the Infra blog.
