VSTS Rangers Project – TFS2TFS Project Copy: Status Update 1

Clipart Illustration of a White Businessman Speaking Through A Red And White Megaphone, Symbolizing Attention And Announcements As promised and previously mentioned, we are pursuing complete transparency in terms of the VSTS rangers projects. I am herewith sharing with you, the outcome of the first status meeting, during which we agreed on scope, deliverables and milestones … with the proviso that you use the information as transparent awareness, not binding commitments.

See VSTS Rangers Project Summary for more details on this and other initiatives.


The proposed scope now includes the following:

  • Public interface of
    • TFS Migration Toolkit v2
    • TFS2TFS Project Copy Application
    • WSS2TFS Sample Application
  • Awareness of
    • TFS Migration Toolkit v2
    • TFS2TFS Project Copy Application


The deliverables are unchanged:

  • Core
    • SDK Documentation
    • TFS2TFS Project Copy Documentation
    • WSS2TFS Project Sample & Documentation
    • Guidance in terms of migration and the usage of the TFS Migration toolkit
  • Exceeded
    • Customer Testimonial
    • Video


The milestones are probably not to be included in this post, as we do not want the challenging dates we are pursuing to appear in other blogs and become ‘published’. What we are aiming for is to work with the VSTS 2010 BETA-1 release and ship the guidance long before VSTS 2010 RTM is shipped. The DRAFT bits should therefore start emerging the fourth quarter of this year.

Shout if you have any questions or recommendations for this project. The team of software engineers working on this exciting initiative would appreciate any input that would allow us to make this an even better product for “you”.

What is cool, is that we had a unanimous vote to use the Visual Studio 2010 architecture edition tools to reverse engineer and visualise the codebase for the documentation. Experiences with the Visual Studio 2010 Architecture Edition, which I am “very” excited about, will be shared shortly …
