Subject Re: [VOTE] Split Marvin to its own repository
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2016 12:00:20 GMT
Hi Rohit,

same question as Rene has posted, impact on older releases – will have issues on older releases.
 I know that the older releases have marvin code which can be used.  Also, this will require
changes on the CI side to pull the correct repo for Marvin.   

+1, if Bharat can modify CI implementation to take care of this?

Based on a recent discussion thread [1], I want to start a voting thread to
gather consensus around splitting Marvin from the CloudStack repository.

On successful voting, we would extract and maintain Marvin as a separate
library in a separate repository (example repository [2]) and various
build/test systems such as Travis [3] can install it directly for usage
with pip+git etc.

Background: During the build process, a commands.xml generated to build
apidocs is also used to generate CloudStack Cmd and Request classes are
auto-generated, which is the only dependency why we needed Marvin and
CloudStack together. The auto-generated cloudstackAPI module can be also
generated against a live running CloudStack mgmt server which has api
discovery (listApis) enabled. The integration tests will still be tied to a
branch and will remain withing the repository. A PR [3] was sent to show
that we can still execute tests using this approach, and this would finally
allow us to build, release and use Marvin as an independent library.

Vote will be open for 72 hours.

For sanity in tallying the vote, can PMC members please be sure to indicate
"(binding)" with their vote?

[ ] +1  approve
[ ] +0  no opinion
[ ] -1  disapprove (and reason why)
