Pause has been moved to pause2.develooper.com. Thanks to
the help from Ask and Robert we found a new home for the
server. At this point I'd like to thank the generous folks
at fiz-chemie.de for their great support over nine
years. There was really no reason to leave the cosy place
but that I felt it would be time to bring the box to a new
continent. And closer to the home of perl. Thank you, both
old and new hosts.

User-visible change: ftp has been banned.

Jesse Vincent sends us a valid five-year SSL certificate
from RapidSSL. This resolves a long standing misbehaviour
of some versions of the Google Chrome Browser that made it
hard for the end user to disable the warning Chrome gives
if a security certificate is not trusted. Thank you,
Jesse.

RJBS and DAGOLDEN meet for a hackathon leading to a <a
href="https://github.com/andk/pause/pull/6">huge pile of
commits</a>. Today the result is deployed to the live
pause, the first upload after the switch was
ADAMK/FBP-Perl-0.61.tar.gz. Well done!

As of today pause is running also on port <a
href="https://pause.perl.org:8443/">https://pause.perl.org:8443/</a>.
This is running with perl 5.12.0-RC5. If this survives the
next few days we'll make it the dafault.

At the Vienna QA Hackathon we're discussing some old hats
that seem to be cast in stone forever and one is the
notification email that is sent immediately after every
upload request. We'll stop sending these because they seem
to be irrelevant nowadays: in practice every upload
succeeds and the user gets the information about success
only one minute later or so. So expect from now on only
one email per developer upload and two emails for stable
uploads.

Pause gets a new IP address. First I forgot that there was
the old IP address hardcoded in the bind-address variable
in my.cnf. This caused mysql not to start. What's worse,
after that I didn't notice that DNS was not working. This
allowed uploads to take place but they all hung during the
first step that required DNS and this prevented all
uploads to succeed. Fortunately they were not dropped but
just in a retry loop. As soon as the DNS problem was
fixed, the jam dissolved. So all Friday uploads got a
considerable delay, I'm sorry for that.

Upgrade perl to 5.10.0. It has run for several days on
5.10.0-RC2 just fine. A fallback to the old perl will run
on the ports 8443 for https and 8000 for http for a short
while.

Upgrade mysql from 4.0.24-10sarge2 to 5.0.32-7etch1. No,
it went not as smoothly as it should, PAUSE was down for
about two and a half hours.

The pause daemon starts to trigger an indexer run during
the upload process with the effect that indexer reports
are sent within a few minutes after upload instead of once
per hour.

Thanks to our generous sponsors at <a
href="http://www.fiz-chemie.de/">fiz-chemie</a>, we have
new hardware: Dual Pentium 3 GHz, 2 GB memory, and 3ware
RAID should speed up the indexing and open lots of new
opportunities to improve the quality of service.

Lots of Thanks to
Andreas,

<li>Welcome Debian! Thanks to RedHat, that has done a
marvelous job over the years, but in the end it was just
missing <i>apt-get</i> functionality. It was an amazing

up</a> howto accomplish that.</li>
