|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Eclipse Shields Server|
thanks for your feedback! Well you can strip it down to "running" a simple WAR file. So a full (virtual) server might not be necessary.
You are right and I did consider that. And from what I learned in the past (they did make a small fix for me, restoring compatibility with Hudson), they would probably accept such a pull request.
However I do think that such a service, which is for Eclipse projects, should be hosted by Eclipse. This is the same for Bugzilla, Wiki and even for Git, where content is replicated. When "shields.io" disappears tomorrow, so would the shields.
A more technical reason is that the PMI JSON interface is pretty slow. It takes a few seconds until this information is provided. I am less worried of images coming in late, but more that such a shield service would increase the load on this interface too much. Hosting a separate service allows to aggressively cache such information. I know shields.io does some sort of caching, but I do think we could do a better job for Eclipse projects.
