[cf-dev] BOSH PMC refactoring part 2 – moving CPIs out of incubation

Marco Voelz

Der friends of BOSH,


We have moved the below CPIs from the cloudfoundry-incubator to the cloudfoundry github organization. The new releases will soon arrive on bosh.io after adapting its configuration [1].


For now, bosh.io/releases will still contain both, the releases for cloudfoundry-incubator as well as the releases in cloudfoundry. After a grace period of four weeks, ending November 1st, we will remove the cloudfoundry-incubator based releases from the bosh.io/releases listing for those CPIs [2]. Until then, please adapt any references to bosh.io/releases for the 5 CPIs below.


Reach out to me directly or reply to this mail if you have any comments or this grace period won't work for you.


Warm regards

Subject: [CAUTION] [cf-dev] BOSH PMC refactoring part 2 – moving CPIs out of incubation


Dear friends of BOSH,


The BOSH project management committee (PMC) proposes to promote the most mature and widely used CPIs from incubation to full project status. Specifically, we want to promote these CPIs

  • AWS CPI [1]
  • OpenStack CPI [2]
  • VSphere CPI [3]
  • Google CPI [4]
  • Azure CPI [5]


Promoting the projects has some impact on their users, depending on how you consume the CPIs

  • We will move the repositories from the cloudfoundry-incubator to the cloudfoundry organization in github. Github takes care of redirecting from the old repository location to the new one, so all links and references to the old repositories should still work. 
  • References on bosh.io currently include the github organization name [6]. In the past, there have been issues with people consuming outdated releases from bosh.io after they had been renamed or moved – we might need a similar mechanism of redirecting that github provides to avoid that.


Please reach out to by replying to this mail or contacting me personally if you have questions, concerns, or comments.


Warm regards
