Re: [wtp-pmc] Late update of the Libra contribution to the Indigo update site

Hi David, 

No, I can't blame the infrastructure problems :) 
I am adding the WTP-PMC list. 

Dear WTP PMC members, could you read the mail thread below and vote for another respin of the Indigo aggregator to include the Libra Indigo SR2 release?

Libra has only few bugfixes [1] for SR2 and they are not critical. However, it would be nice to release them with the Indigo SR2 train, because they would help adopters to build on top of the OSGi Enterprise story. 

I didnât realize it would be so complex to trigger another build of the aggregator. I donât believe that EPP packages are really affected. Libra is not included in any EPP package - it is just part of the Common Discovery Site. AFAIK, there isn't any Eclipse project that depends on Libra. 

Patch build is not really an option, especially for adopter's products that are delivered as Add-On . Actually we have these changes released in Indigo SR2 compatible p2 repository, but installing the version from there would be an unintuitive extra effort for users that may happen when they hit the problem and contact the adopter.

Greetings,

Hi Kaloyan,

Sounds like you can't even blame it on the infrastructure problems
yesterday? :)

Technically, the answer is "yes", but ... this should go though the proper
channels, first to WTP-PMC list, to make sure they agree, then to your PMC
planning council rep (me :) to take forward to planning council, etc. (or,
for me to make a "command decision").

Please read some discussion about a Dali bug where we discussed this
yesterday:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=371542

If you do want to request a respin, you should mention the specific bugs
fixed (and try to make them sound blocking or critical (maybe just
collectively?), who/what might need to retest and if effects EPP packages
(which, I know is "yes").  Or, is it possible to include in the patch
build, for Dali?

I personally don't mind .... and I think another project will be requesting
a respin (I am still trying to clarify ... notes might be coming out of
order) I just want to make sure it goes through the right process.

Thanks,

Hi David,

I apologize, but Iâve just realized that the Indigo Build was fixed to the
Indigo SR1 release of Libra. I thought I had put a pointer to the latest
maintenance build, but I was wrong.

Iâve just updated the Indigo Build to point to the Indigo SR2 release of
Libra. Is it possible to trigger a new build of the Indigo Aggregator?

Thanks,
Kaloyan
