Subject [jira] Commented: (CASSANDRA-1159) For contrib modules that use Java, have a consistent build mechanism
Date Fri, 04 Jun 2010 20:56:54 GMT


Jonathan Ellis commented on CASSANDRA-1159:

Yeah, I guess we were/are on different pages there.  I personally don't see the point of having
it in-tree, if we're not going to take some responsibility for at least minimal upkeeping,
especially since it makes it _more_ difficult for non-committers to patch it.

But I still think it's worth distinguishing between "core" code and contrib, even if the line
is somewhat subjective...  If we wanted to make it non-subjective I would be okay with drawing
a line that says "example code can go in contrib/, everything else should be in core or spun
off elsewhere as its own project."

> Contrib modules have a habit of periodically not working for some reason.  To some extent
that's expected - they are optional contrib modules.  However, I think it's reasonable to
at least have some way to perform a periodic sanity check on them if we can.
> This improvement would make sure there is a consistent build mechanism - build.xml -
for each of the contrib modules that use Java.  That way, there could be a hudson build perhaps
nightly or weekly, that could inform the devs if the contrib modules are not even compiling.
 It's not like it would be a huge priority to fix immediately, but they would at least be
aware that changes in the code/config have broken a contrib module.
