Re: [ecf-dev] Create a build based on tycho

HI Scott,

There is a Gerrit review pending here: https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/71986/

Hi Mykola,

ECF previously had some commitment from Red Hat to support a move to Tycho, but there hasn't been very much progress there.

I don't have the personal resources to do the necessary releng work myself without some commitment of support, but so far that support doesn't appear to be forthcoming.

If you are willing to contribute releng work on ECF we would be happy to incorporate it.  Actually, it would be very helpful to extend our build to many of the repos at github as well [1].

In short, ECF is lacking resources sufficient to effect these releng changes. ÂIf you can provide resources or know how that might be done, please contact me directly.

I'm wondering what is the plan to move forward with Tycho-based build

As I understand, it's not possible/desirable to switch from b3 to Tycho
in a single shot and Tycho-based build should prove it can replace an
existing one. Ideally, for the same Git commit, a p2 repository built by
Tycho should be identical, bit-by-bit, to official p2 repository (not
sure if it's possible, though).

So, the first thing that is missing, from my PoV, is Gerrit trigger that
will build new changes with Tycho and publish a p2 repository.
