As time passes by, things change. During the pastÂ years Icinga as an organization and as a software has evolved enormously. A side-effect of this growth is that requirements change as well. We feel responsible and are expected to react to them. Today I am happy and excited to announce that we moved our codeÂ and issue management to GitHub. Find us at github.com/icinga
We want to work even closer with the community thanÂ we already do. We’d like to make it easier for everyone to contribute to Icinga 2, Icinga Web 2 andÂ any other of our projects. Furthermore, theÂ issue management in our rather outdated Redmine installation does not fit our needs anymore. We want to keep the discussions as near to the code as possible.

Additionally,Â starting with our partner program, we found that the permission management in Gitosis is not something we want to maintain.
We want to move, and we mean it. We’re not just closing old doors and shutting down dev.icinga.com and git.icinga.com. We worked hard to specify what this change means to us and everyone affected by it. We decided that we want to keep theÂ history. So we moved all of theÂ issues (open and closed) to GitHub. The scripts used for this migration are public and you can find them here. Old links are redirected to the new issues. Nothing isÂ lost, just moved to another place. This is how we tryÂ make this change for everyone as comfortable as possible.
