EoL of oC6: Merge oC5 and oC6 forums together

Postby RealRancor » Tue Sep 29, 2015 11:06 am

Hi,

oC6 reached End-of-Life this month:

https://github.com/owncloud/core/wiki/M ... e-Schedule

so closing of oC6 forums and merging the topics with the oC5 forums could make sense.

In addition please also note in the text of the locked forums that those are locked because the versions reached End-of-Life

Good idea. I created a new category and moved these unsupported releases into there. That way it is still easily possible to see for what release an issue was filed.

Nice, thanks.

I wonder if if would make sense to do the same for the oC 8.0/8.1 forums and the upcoming 8.2/9.0?

@RealRancor: Not sure if I got your message.
You like to have new forums for each release like 8.1 / 8.2 / 9.0 ?

Yepp, exactly as issues on oC 8.1 could be completely different as on oC 8.2 because both are major versions. Any opinions about this?

No problems with new forums for each release.

Should we have one for 8.1 even if 8.2 is out soon?

Just seen new EOL forum section.

@AnybodyElse: Why did you lock them? People should still be able to ask and discuss questions on older releases. Not everybody can upgrade e.g. php versions on embedded systems.

I think 8.1 can be skipped as it would need a manual split of topics.

Personally i think the old versions forums should be locked. We don't have the resources in here to give support for end-of-life and possible buggy versions of oC which already got fixes in newer versions.

Locking the forums will also avoid posts like "i have the same problem" in such older threads where it is often the case that it is absolutely not the same problem.

Ok. Got your points.

Other opinions?

btw. Some days ago I already added eol information to red boxes of older forums see viewforum.php?f=26
