Help us test the upgrade of Geotargeting rules to GeoIP2

The Revive Adserver project team is looking for help from community members to test the upgrade path of geotargeting to GeoIP2.

In a recent blog post, we announced our plans to modernize the Geotargeting feature in Revive Adserver. The upcoming version 4.2 of Revive Adserver will have support for the new GeoIP2 and GeoLite2 data files published by MaxMind.

In the blog post, we mentioned that we intend to include a migration process for existing geotargeting rules. This would ensure that banners with existing getoargeting will be converted from the current format to the new format, as best as possible.

However, we recognize that there are very many ways to use geotargeting, and even more combinations of all of those. As a result, it would be virtually impossible to define a set of test cases that cover every possible use case. The second best alternative is to enlist the help of the Revive Adserver community.

If you use Revive Adserver with a few dozen, or preferably a few hundred banners, that have geotargeting rules specified, and if you’re willing and able to send us an export of the banners and targeting tables from your database, then please consider submitting the form below. Once we are ready to start testing, we will contact you (or a subset of the applicants if there is much interest) and provide instructions on how to send us the necessary table exports.
Yes, I would like to contribute to the Revive Adserver project by participating in the Geotargeting upgrade path test process.
A note about your privacy: any personal data collected through this form will only be used to contact you for this particular test. The Revive Adserver project team will not share your data with anyone, and we will not contact you for anything other than this test.
If you’re unable to assist us with this specific item, then please consider helping us by becoming a sponsor of the Revive Adserver project on Patreon.

For as little as $10 a month or more, your financial contribution helps us to continue developing Revive Adserver so that it continues to be the world’s most popular, free, open source ad server system.
