Subject Re: [PROPOSAL][Merge] Windowsfication of management server
Date Fri, 28 Mar 2014 11:29:13 GMT
This was proposed as per laid down norms and then merge request was sent on time. It took time
to incorporate all the requested changes.
This is going to provide basis for a full blown feature and as such we should include the
commits in 4.4.

if this is a feature in that sense. It seems like minor changes and the addition of a few
scripts, making it a simple change in my view. It would be great to be able to announce this,
but for it to be part of a release i think we need a couple of other things to be done. The
most prominent are, packaging, testing and documentation.

I would expect to see the packaging and functional tests on starting and stopping CS on a
windows host as part of the automated test procedure. I’d be happy to work with you to set
it up on Jenkins.

4.4 release, but of course this is depending on the consensus in the community. I’m just
the RM, not the guy who decides what goes into a release.
