Subject Re: GSoC 2010 - Unofficial pool for organizations that are planning to participate
Date Thu, 04 Mar 2010 08:24:57 GMT

Adding ASF to the pool sounds like a good idea to me!

For getting a 'cleaner' URL, we should be able to create a page in
Confluence and use the jiraissues/rss macros to get the list from JIRA
on the wiki page.  That might also help us with another problem: the
current JIRA view is looking in, but
some of our projects are using one of the other issue tracking systems
mentioned on (e.g. the projects I'm mainly
working on, ActiveMQ/Camel/ServiceMix, are using a separate JIRA).
With the wiki page we could get the results from all the JIRA/BugZilla
instances that have GSoC information in them.

The main problem with this approach, is that the auto-export function
of Confluence won't be able to figure out that the JIRA view has
changed, so we have to do the auto-export manually from time to time
to pick up the latest results AFAIK, but perhaps someone can think of
a smarter way to aggregate the results (using feedburner or something
to create a unified feed)?
