The JFrog company standing behind Artifactory and Bintray has generously offered to sponsor a dedicated Artifactory instance and an org account on Bintray for OpenMRS. Thank you JFrog! Thanks @jbaruch for you assistance in the process as well!
The hosted Artifactory will save the infrastructure team a lot of maintenance work with our own Nexus instance and hopefully in the long run give better experience for OpenMRS devs. Artifactory will be used as our maven repo and help devs do the work.
Alongside we will use Bintray to distribute wars, distributions, modules and open web apps for end users. We will be deploying all releases from Artifactory to Bintray automatically thanks to the integration between the two.
We are working on making the migration as seamless as possible. If you have an account on mavenrepo.openmrs.org, please stay tuned to further announcements in the coming week to help us migrate it to Artifactory.
I'd like to thank @cintiadr, who has volunteered to help with the migration process and makes it so much easier for me!
If you have any further questions, please get in touch with me or @cintiadr.
