Subject: RE: [orbit-dev] Check out these beautiful new download pages!
that a happy coincidence or is it the case that we are only shipping ones that
have Orbit CQs?
The later, all
bundles have Orbit CQs ... with 2 qualifications: 1. I didn't actually check
all the CQ numbers -- that they exist, that they are in tools.orbit -- the page
just finds and lists the CQ numbers in the "ip_logs" files that
committers have provided, and 2) since I was making the webpage to report
missing ip_logs, before I announced it, I made sure there was an ip_log for
everything :) There was a CQ for all the missing ones I
added, but in some cases was not correctly entered in the tools.orbit project,
so I entered ones for those cases.
basically lists all the bundles we build (not necessarily all the ones in cvs
.. as others have pointed out (DJ?) ... I think there is some in cvs that are
not built, since not in the feature.xml file ... not sure if that's intentional,
or an oversight.
And, then once
the page has the list of all the bundles we build, the page searches through
all the ip_log files looking for matching bundle IDs and versions, and then
"merges" the data together. Besides listing a found CQ number, two other
outcomes are "No IP Log file exists" or "No CQ for this version
It should make
it easier to "manually" check that all bundles are covered, and
provide an ongoing quick check as new bundles are added. Long term, I suppose,
someone could write SQL queries to look up the CQ number and verify the data
... but, not sure it's worth the effort and/or we could have JUnit tests to
flag an error if data was missing ... but, I like the visual-and-hyperlinking
display of information better as a starting point. The other question I hear a
lot is "who should I contact about bundle so-and-so" ... so, if no
objections, one other piece of data I'll display (eventually) is a column of
"contacts" for each bundle.

is great! I especially like that all bundles on the page have
corresponding Orbit CQs!! Is that a happy coincidence or is it the case
that we are only shipping ones gthat have Orbit CQs?
David for all your work on this. Very useful.

Beginning this week, I've tried to convey more information in the download
pages, so it will be easier to tell when
a bundle may or may not have the proper book-keeping files and CQs in place.
For example, see
Eventually I may add more info to this summary page, to help others (committers
and legal staff) to check for accuracy, etc. .... and, who knows,
maybe it'll even be pretty one day. :)
So ... please click around and make sure _your_ links are accurate and ...
harder to spot ... that there are none omitted.
