Lack of cdnjs activity #13524
Long story super short:
We have an on-going internal discussion to get this resolved but this is the current state of affairs, nothing has really progressed since we (core maintainers) first raised the access issue internally in late September.
Key immediate issues:
Key long-term issues:
I reached out again to the founder in question yesterday (October 20th) to see if we can get any progress as we have both Microsoft (in #13500) and Greensock [GSAP] (in my Twitter DMs), who are both "big players", asking what's going on.
I actually got a response that they're going to sort something so that we (core maintainers) at least have access to merge PRs in this repo, nothing more though so far...
We (core maintainers) now (October 22nd) have access to merge PRs on cdnjs/cdnjs but the auto-update bot is still offline (as was originally described in this issue), so merging new and updated package.json PRs will achieve nothing as there is no bot to detect them and pull in new assets. We are still working internally to resolve this.
I followed up internally again on the 29th October regarding the two current key issues (auto-update & repo access). This issue has then made it to the front page of HackerNews (1st November) and still there has not been any progress internally, just radio silence. I'm really sorry we haven't got this sorted yet. :(
One of our founders has reappeared and granted Cloudflare full owner access to the cdnjs org to get things fixed. I believe that Cloudflare are going to have one of their engineers work to get things back up and running again. You can see the full comment from Zack below: #13524 (comment)
I work at Cloudflare on the team which supports CDNJS. To be very clear, any site using CDNJS will continue to get the files it relies on without interruption. We're committed to keeping CDNJS updated, performant, and reliable, for as long as the Internet chooses to use it.
We have engineers currently working with the CDNJS team to get the updating happening again. Once that is completed we can start thinking about the best long-term model to ensure projects stay updated without another incident like this. We deeply appreciate the patience and help from the CDNJS team, the users of CDNJS, and of course @MattIPv4, as this gets sorted.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused here, never mean to harm the project or Cloudflare.
It's really a ... hard decision to make to step down and take a rest, on a project I spent so much time and varies of resources on it, actually, I'm a little bit tired, too many things need to be done, resources are really limited, only few contributors get involved into it, instead, so many people take it as granted ...
Anyway, yes, we're working with Cloudflare right now to see how we can get it sorted, I hope it won't take too long.
Remove the `cdnjs` recommendation as the hosted copy of this project is no longer kept up to date¹, and their update process seems to not be fully automated². - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ¹ #181 ² cdnjs/cdnjs#13606 (comment) See also: * #181 * cdnjs/cdnjs#13524 Fix #181
Looks like that was published quite a while back - I would guess that the file structure has changed or another issue has occurred with the auto-update of it that means manual intervention will be needed. Please create a separate issue requesting the library is updated here.
