Thanks very much for your note. My apologies in getting back to you so
Yes, we are interested in usage, although as you describe below we
haven't put in any instrumentation for docshare yet. I've opened an
enhancement request to that effect here:
If you could, please join the bug and indicate there (in comment) what
information you would like to get...i.e. high-level (docshare
started/stopped), or lower-level (messages).
RE: a contribution...any contributions would be very welcome! If you
create a patch and attach it to that enhancement request we (one of the
committers working in this area...which are Marcelo, Mustafa, and
me/Scott) will apply the patch, test, and then release. Any
contributinos are automatically under EPL (just wanted to make this clear).
Any such contributions (whether code, docs, testing results, etc) are
*always* welcome and will get very high priority (in case it's not
obvious, we are a relatively small group of dedicated folks...most
working on ECF part-time).
If you wish to create a patch, and want to make sure that we aren't
making lots of changes on other things while working on it, please
indicate that you are working on a patch in a certain area on the
bug/enhancement request, and we will attempt to avoid doing things that
would make it harder to contribute.
Please be sure to work from the HEAD/ECF 3.0 stream.
I am about to roll out the shared editing in my company but one thing
is holding it up right now from going out, and that is being able to
track the usage. I don’t know if this is something that you would be
interested in tracking via the epp usage data collection or not.
I noticed that just listening for the command to be executed is not
the best way since it does not mean that it is necessarily the Doc
share functionality. So my next thought was to add a listener to
DocShare.java, the IChannelListener looks like it would do the trick
but only one is allowed and it is already set. So it would mean create
my own listener and patch the DocShare class to fire an event when
localStartShare or localStopShare is fired. I want to contribute this
as a patch but I want to know that this is is something that could be
accepted? Do you have something different in mind?
