Ich hab gerade nochmal den Link zu der Pressemitteilung gefunden, mit der Ton Voon und ich im November 2005 den offiziellen Status von NagiosExchange als Plugin Repository veröffentlicht haben. Damit der Text nicht in Vergessenheit gerät, dumpe ich ihn mal hier:
Today the Nagios Plugin team are announcing that NagiosExchange.org (http://www.nagiosexchange.org) is the official repository for Nagios Plugins. While the core plugins will continue to be developed at Sourceforge (http://nagiosplug.sourceforge.net), NagiosExchange will be the central store for 3rd party plugins.
“This will allow more rapid development of plugins” explains Ton Voon, project lead for the Nagios Plugins. “There is a fantastic Nagios community who have been creating great features in their new plugins and submitting them for addition into our core package. However, we were finding that our project team was the bottleneck for distributing and making changes to their work. This move will free the community to develop and maintain their own code, independently of the Plugins team.”
“With over 320,000 downloads and over 3,300 registered users since we launched 11 months ago, NagiosExchange is an established solution”, says Julian Hein, Managing Director at NETWAYS GmbH who host the service. “They wanted something like CPAN (the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network) and part of its success was the creation of mirrors so we are proud to announce that we have setup our first mirror at http://nagiosexchange.altinity.org, donated by Altinity Limited. We hope the community will build on this and continue to make Nagios the best open source monitoring solution.”
