Section 1. SITE STATUS

We've received feedback in the past few months that project admins like
you want to be kept informed of any service downtimes which exceed 4
hours and the launch of any major new services.  We are sending out
today's mailing to all project admins to highlight the details of
upcoming datacenter migration events (some with downtime) and to provide
direct notice of some new service offerings.

We're averaging about one of these mails per month; and we're only
sending mail on the most significant activities.  If you would like to
see the play-by-play of our activities to improve the SourceForge.net
site and services offering, we encourage you to keep an eye on the Site
Status forum at:

Section 3. HOSTED APPS

Earlier this week, we launched a major new service offering for
SourceForge.net-hosted projects, "Hosted Apps".  The Hosted Apps service
was launched with support for three applications: phpBB, MediaWiki and
LimeSurvey.  Whereas in the past projects would have needed to expend
your team's time to set these applications up in project web space, you
may now opt-in your project to use any of these applications and we
handle the software setup, performance tuning and upgrades.

You may opt-in for any of our supported applications using the new
"Hosted Apps" page under the Project Admin menu for your project.

Additional information regarding the launch of our Hosted Apps offering
may be seen at:

Section 4. TRACKER 2 BETA

Our friends on the SourceForge.net Engineering team have been working
to improve the UI of the Tracker ticketing system that is part of the
feature set built in to the SourceForge.net site.  Earlier this week,
they launched a beta of the new functionality, including a substantial
number of UI improvements and user-requested enhancements to Tracker.
This new functionality is visible when you opt-in for the Tracker 2 beta. 
The Engineering team is eager to receive your feedback.

Information regarding this new offering (including how to opt-in) may be
seen at: http://sourceforge.net/community/forum/topic.php?id=3368&page


We hope that this has been a useful update from our team to your team.
