Re: [equinox-dev] Move the equinox incubator to RT

I agree that C is the way to go for all th reasons Tom mentioned plus:  The incubator is a distinct "subproject" with distinct commit rights etc.  spreading out the content will be confusing and just asking for things to "graduate by accident"

The incubator area should be structured according to the work areas which may or may not correspond to the formal components that we have in the rest of Equinox.

I prefer something similar to option C. This is because we have examples of work areas that do not fit into any of the existing graduated categories. For example, the AspectJ stuff. I think it would be better to have one incubator folder with a different folder underneath for each workarea.

I am against option B. A flat structure has proven to be confusing and hard to find what you are looking for. I could be enticed to use option A if we allow new incubator work areas to have their own folder under org.eclipse.equinox. For example

org.eclipse.equinox/aspectj/incubator ...

Where org.eclipse.equinox/aspectj would not have any thing except the incubator folder because nothing has graduated from it yet. Once something graduates it would move up into the parent "aspectj" folder. A disadvantage to this approach is that it will pollute the org.eclipse.equinox/ folder with work areas that may never graduate and could be abandoned altogether.

Re: [equinox-dev] Move the equinox incubator to RT





While this is being done, could we start talking about the shape of things in this incubator?
The current structure of the repo is:
org.eclipse.equinox/
framework/
bundles/
p2/
bundles/
[...]

What do we want:
A - one incubator folder under each work are in the repo?
org.eclipse.equinox/
framework/
bundles/
incubator/
p2/
bundles/
incubator/
[...]

B - one incubator and everything flat
org.eclipse.equinox/
incubator/
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.foo.bar
org.eclipse.log.zoo....
framework/
bundles/
p2/
bundles/
[...]

C - one incubator with structure reflecting the work areas
org.eclipse.equinox/
incubator/
p2/
org.eclipse.equinox.p2.foo.bar
compendium/
org.eclipse.log.zoo
framework/
bundles/
p2/
bundles/
[...]

Personally I would vote for A.
What do you think?

[equinox-dev] Move the equinox incubator to RT




We have put this off long enough. As a New Year's resolution we will finally move the equinox incubator to its rightful place under RT->Equinox. We do not want to just move everything from the old equinox incubator over to the RT->Equinox because many projects in the old incubator are outdated and stagnant. We have opened a bug (
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=258483) to determine what bundles from the equinox incubator are still active and should be moved over to the RT->Equinox repository.

At this time we are looking for folks on the Equinox team and the community to tell us what project from the incubator are still active. If you are using or maintaining a project in the equinox incubator then please chime into the bug
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=258483 and let us know what projects you would like to see migrated over. Once we have the list of projects determined then we will finalize the new repository layout for the equinox incubator. We want to have the list of projects finalized by M5 (end of January).

Tom
