Re: [mylyn-reviews-dev] Project status

Thanks for the update, Mario. It's unfortunate that the ESE talks got rejected. I'll be attending the conference either way and would be happy to meet up if anyone else is going, too.

I didn't hear anyone from the Reviews project respond to the restructuring discussion on today's call. I basically suggested that instead of creating sub-sub-project for R4E and Gerrit to proceed with a single Mylyn Reviews project that holds all components. Everyone involved gets commit rights and social conventions are used to limit commits to certain parts rather than Unix permissions.

My experience is that particularly in the early stages of development features tend to require changes in the reference implementation as well as the framework and often overlap between references implementations. Not having commit rights on all components can hamper development speed and it's often better to revert a change than be blocked on an review or merging of a patch. It also encourages contributions to the framework and avoid code duplication.

I'd be curious to know what your thoughts are about this proposal: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Mylyn/Restructuring#Reviews_.28Incubation.29 ? I am in favor of keeping the structure as simple as possible which always leaves the option to split out sub-sub-projects later on if needed.
