Kodi DevCon 2016 Live Blog

Good morning everyone and welcome to the Kodi DevCon 2016 Liveblog. As many of you know, my name is Nate, and much like last year, I’ll be doing my best to update the blog with as much of the content we discuss over the next few days as my jet-lagged brain will allow.



As always, DevCon begins with all the devs who are attending introducing themselves.

Switching services over to hosted services, also a discussion of switching various services

At present Kodi hosts most of all its services on a few servers, including wordpress, trac, the forum, and the wiki. This results in an incredibly amount of overhead.

The biggest issue is switching from trac to hosted jira. The biggest problem with switching to an open source jira license is that jira has a hard 5000 user limit (that’s a problem because every person who reports a bug would count as a new user). The biggest reason to switch away from trac is that the git integration isn’t great and doesn’t scale.
