Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVY-1352) New resolver using CUDF format
Date Fri, 25 May 2012 18:40:22 GMT


Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVY-1352:

Your patch looks interesting.

I see that you have implemented a specific resolver. I guess you don't need to. You just need
to register your parser into the file, just like you did for the CUDF resolver.
Then every existing resolver while be able to work with a repository which contains cudf files.

About the intent here. Has it been implemented so Ivy would be able to read an existing CUDF
repository somewhere ? Or it is 'just' to suggested another more humain friendly format than
xml ?

And just to be sure I understand this well (I didn't knew about the CUDF format until 10 minutes
ago). The CUDF format seems to be quite liberal. Though the suggested CUDFParser here is expecting
some properties in order to work properly, right ? If so at some point we'll need a documentation
about it. But that's not a blocker to have this patch applied.

> I developed a resolver for ivy using a cudf input format to determine the dependencies
of a module.
> The CUDF format is used by debian packet management. It is a plain text file/stream which
describes dependencies of a module, using a specific version format (only integer). It is
fully upgradable/customizable.
