This code base serves not only the components mentioned above but is also geared towards replacing [galaxy.ansible.com](https://galaxy.ansible.com) with a brand-new, cutting-edge foundation. > > From its inception, galaxy_ng was designed with the ambition of supplanting the aging [galaxy.ansible.com](https://galaxy.ansible.com) while also serving as the core code base for the Automation Hub component within the Ansible Automation Platform. The enhanced galaxy is already accessible at [beta-galaxy.ansible.com](https://beta-galaxy.ansible.com). We've been meticulously synchronizing the data to ensure it remains up-to-date. > > We are thrilled to announce that we will be transitioning [galaxy.ansible.com](https://galaxy.ansible.com) to this new codebase on September 30th. Our commitment to the next generation of Galaxy services on this unified codebase remains unwavering. > > If you access Ansible Galaxy through the ansible-galaxy CLI or the new v3 API, the process is straightforward: regenerate your access token, you can immediately log in to [beta-galaxy.ansible.com](https://beta-galaxy.ansible.com). > > After the transition, the previous site will continue to be accessible at [old-galaxy.ansible.com](https://old-galaxy.ansible.com), serving as a read-only instance. > We warmly invite all contributors to provide their valuable feedback on [forum.ansible.com](https://forum.ansible.com), utilizing the galaxy tag. > > Best regards, > The Galaxy Team [Gwmngilfen](https://matrix.to/#/@gwmngilfen:ansible.im) said > ### Trip report - Ansible Community Day > > The community day was an amazing thing - ~60 people, 8 talks, much great chat, and an evening out to remember. So much fun, so many action items for next week 😉 > > I had a great time, but to tell it all would take up the whole Bullhorn, so I've written it up [on the forum](https://forum.ansible.com/t/ansible-community-day-berlin-2023-trip-reports/1023) (where else, are you bored of me yet? 😛).
