Coincident with the December 21, 2012 end of marketing date previously published in the software withdrawal announcement (link: http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/ShowDoc.wss?docURL=/common/ssi/rep_ca/8/897/ENUS912-138/index.html&lang=en&request_locale=en), we will be removing the free and unsupported portions of the WebSphere sMash offering, including the projectzero.org website and the WebSphere sMash Developer Edition downloads.
Licensed sMash customers will continue to have access to service and support through their official IBM support channels. The WebSphere sMash InfoCenter (link: http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/wsmashin/v1r1m1/index.jsp) will also remain online.

Re: Announcement: ProjectZero website removal2013-01-01T21:18:46Z in response to SystemAdminDoes that mean the repositories fo resolving and updating modules are also offline ?
I cannot update/resolve any longer on existing installations right now....
In the announcement it only states that de download for the developer edition will be removed, not the
repositories that are needed to run it.
How is this handled now for existing installs/customers ?

Yes. All content related to the free and unsupported versions of sMash, including the network repositories formerly hosted on projectzero.org, is now offline.
>> How is this handled now for existing installs/customers ?
sMash's local repository architecture allows existing sMash DE apps to continue to operate as-is. There is no ability to update or redeploy new instances of sMash Developer Edition or the former 'ProjectZero' experimental drivers from the network repository. There is no ability to add new dependencies that require new repository content to be downloaded to your CLI from the remote (network) repository.
Licensed versions of the WebSphere sMash product are unaffected, as the installer provides both a local copy of the repository and access to the licensed version of the remote repository, hosted on ibm.com.
