Edit: This is pinned globally because it’s probably good for everyone to be aware, but this only impacts you if you are a package maintainer, in which case it changes the way you have to register new versions of packages. TLDR: starting on Monday, you’ll need to use Registrator instead of attobot to register new package versions.
We’re planning to switch from registering packages using attobot against METADATA.jl to registering packages with Registrator against the General registry on Monday. In advance of that, it would be great if people could test out Registrator and see how it goes—currently it’s setup to register new package versions with a dummy fork of General, but the process is otherwise the one that we’ll be using. If you change your registry to point at the fork, then you can use this to install packages as well. It would be greatly helpful if people could try it out.
Also, there is likely to be some down time during which one cannot register new package versions during the switchover. And depending on how it goes, there may be additional down time. So please let this be advance warning that if you really need to register a new package version for some reason, do it before Monday or hold off until later next week.
