This email outlines the plan we have for transitioning away from the AG1
infrastructure and supporting solely the AG2 infrastructure by year-end.
Some of the goals of this plan are:
- migrate the community to the latest reliable software
- schedule to coincide with university summer schedules,
so the transition doesn't impact production use during the
- ease the support load on the AG Dev Team
- provide long enough transition time to enable all AG1
users to find appropriate time to upgrade
Here is the timeline of the transition we are planning on following:
May 4, 2003:
Moratorium on the creation of all AG 1 Venues, and AG 1 Bridge
as announced at the May Town Hall.
June 4, 2003:
Start AG2 Production Institutional Venue Service.
- Service Details:
No Bridging Services provided, but institutions can run their
own bridges against their own venue
1 Venue per Institution
September 3, 2003:
AG 1 Institutional Venues (and their AG1 Bridges) are turned off.
December 1, 2003:
AG 1 Core Venues and remaining AG 1 Bridging are turned off.
