Subject Re: [Dev] Unable to start Airavata after the source build
Date Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:13:53 GMT
Hi Ishara--

I'm glad to hear about your interest.  Getting XBaya integrated back 
with the Thrift API would be a great contribution.  Note also Shameera 
Yodage has been working on this and can clarify if he has any recent 
fixes that need to be committed to master.

You will need to create Jiras if appropriate ones don't exist.  We 
ideally follow the epic-story-subtask pattern.  Epics are collections of 
Jira stories. Jira stories are collections of related tasks (entered as 
Jira subtasks).  Each subtask is a well-defined, closeable problem.  
These should be self describing and prescriptive: after reading a 
subtask description, anyone should be able to close it.

When you complete a subtask, attach your fix as a patch in Jira.

I recommend spending some time first outlining a set of story tasks 
before diving into the code to fix miscellaneous bugs.
