They originally said toward the latter part of April, but I don't remember the date. It could change in any case.
Yes but there was an update I can no longer find, all the transition is done, final testing "can start" as of a week ago.

The original date thrown up was Apr 22. But like all projects communications could be improved.

I know this isn't actually Boinc, but if anyone does Folding at Home, the forums are broken. I got this response by emailing the admin:

What's all this about then?
"Your message contains too few characters."
The forum is currently broken, hosting company loaded updates to the libraries that are incompatible with the version of the forum software being run. The forum and its existing content are being moved to a new host in the very near future. Not sure exactly when, still a few things to fix before switching.

Email responses to this address have already been redirected, further replies may not get a response until after the switch. Just got access back to the email on the current server to check before moving.

No surprise, but I figured I'd post that BOTH iThena projects have been unreachable for over 27 hours so far.

Project goes walkabout quite frequently for several hours and then return for more uptime, rinse and repeat over and over.

Project Admin rarely communicate with users either via forums or through Twitter.

WCG delayed until May 9th, 2022 - Facebook, Twitter
~~~
"With a heavy heart we must announce to volunteers our intent to delay restarting the WCG until May 9th, 2022. Several issues discovered in our production environment remain unresolved, making it impossible to meet the April 22, 2022 deadline at this time.

Unexpected issues continue to delay the full validation of the QA environment, meaning there is no path yet to a responsible restart of the Production system even if all outstanding issues were resolved today. Several obstacles that proved difficult to resolve due to inexperience with specific components in the WCG software stack, contribute to our need for yet more time to bring the Grid back online.

Notably, the website build broke due to a dependency that brought React version 18.0.2 into the build, whereas the site was developed against React version 17. The lack of experience with React and modern web development practices within our team resulted in what now seems a simple fix, pinning React to the previously working version 17 for all dependencies that permitted a change in major versions when resolving required packages at build time. Volunteers may have noticed this issue, as it coincided with a long silence at www.worldcommunitygrid.org, which could not be updated. In addition, we overlooked a misconfiguration in the messaging/queueing middleware (IBM MQ), and a missing root certificate took far too long to discover as the reason Apache could not talk to IBM Websphere. The last few public IPs to be assigned were not routable due to a misconfigured VLAN. While these issues were all resolved, we now need more time to ensure there are no more surprises.

As a rule, this level of detail should be omitted from updates and has been omitted from previous updates. From our perspective, the specifics of the technical obstacles that hinder us are immaterial, as what we owe to volunteers is a working backend for the World Community Grid. The Grid is far too valuable to let go - and despite challenges, we are committed to supporting open science on the Grid. Given the already overlong timeframe of the migration, and to assuage concerns as to whether we are progressing towards the goal at all, we thought to make an exception given that we are asking for your patience just a while longer before we are fully ready to restart the WCG. We must and we will succeed.

Thank you to all who have contributed feedback and words of encouragement during the downtime. We do see your posts even if we cannot always reply at this stage. Your understanding and patience is truly appreciated. We will prepare a proper team introduction and answer the questions and address the comments once the Grid is back on.

WCG Tech team"

I don't see a problem with that. I knew that with a complicated system that was fine-tuned by IBM over the years, it would not be a simple matter of copying files as some people thought.
Keep at it.

Previous updates are under "Migration updates →" (also at top of page)

https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/news


The news link in BOINC client won't take you to this page though. It'll just land you on the home page as well all the other links will to.

And on that page is a big picture saying migration update. 24th now (I'd bet 20 grand they miss this one too).

Einstein has inherited that behaviour from SET@Home - as soon as a contest starts run away and hide....

Is universe@home down or so? I don't get WUs and completed ones are not uploaded for days now.

The homepage is available, some servers up, some down.

The BOINC PENTATHALON had overloaded the project server. It should start to respond better possibly in next few hours....
