Over the next few months, DevjaVu will be winding down and eventually shutting down. We’ll try to hold on as long as possible, but we don’t have the money to run more than a few months unless we work something out with Engine Yard (perhaps go down to one slice). We highly recommend you start migrating off as soon as possible. A more concrete end of service date will be announced soon.
You have access to your SVN repo and Trac instance in the Admin under Export. If your repository is too big to export, we can do the export for you and give you a link to download. Just contact firstname.lastname@example.org if that’s the case. If worse comes to worse and we do have to shut down before everybody is off, we’ll give plenty of warning and then provide downloadable exports of everybody’s projects linked in an email to the project owner once the service is off.
This is the first time I’ve had to do anything like this, so if you have any feedback on handling this in a better way, let me know. I’d love to give a detailed explanation of what’s going on, but I think I’m going to hold off until the final day. In short: the business never got the momentum I wanted to sustain my personal interest, so while running at breakeven worked so-so for so long, it finally started dying and has been losing money for a while. I started an effort to save it, but I decided I did not want to continue supporting this type of service.
Sorry everybody! I would have liked this to be less of a surprise than it is for some of you, which could have been avoided if I better communicated with you guys up to this point. If you have questions or concerns, email me at email@example.com
