I logged into the machine to observe the issue in real time and I can
confirm the redmine process simply takes too much time which leads to
the gateway giving up (and the process eventually being killed).
I don't have a solution (more about that below) but I provided
instructions for a workaround at
Ludwig confirmed that should be enough for the time being, although it
implies 9 steps from the user point of view.
So we are unblocked. \o/
Back to fixing the issue in a definitive way...
The root of all evil is that progress.o.o runs a very old version of
Redmine and, as a consequence, a rather old Ruby and operating system.
Even more, when I logged into the machine I noticed the Redmine log had
not been rotated for months. It was eating 8.5GB of disk space,
basically the whole /srv partition... so expect fireworks sooner than
later if that's not fixed. In short, quite an "hostile" environment to
make real diagnosis/modifications there beyond what I did (that was not
exactly developer work, just "top" and look for alternatives).
I know there are plans to migrate everything to recent versions and a
properly maintained up-to-date machine. That means updating Redmine,
which would imply dropping or updating several custom Redmine plugins
nobody is maintaining anymore. Already some time ago Darix created this
Back then, I was trying to help to move some plugins forward. But it
would be better to drop as many plugins as possible or to get help from
someone that is still an up-to-date Ruby On Rails developer (in the last
three years I have only touched Rails to fix concrete progress.o.o and
So the Leap15 release process is unblocked by the workaround... but it
would be nice to have a final problems-free progress.o.o by the time of
