Subject [jira] Commented: (CONTINUUM-1847) Allow a build definition to actually be a template
Date Sun, 24 Aug 2008 19:47:26 GMT


Wendy Smoak commented on CONTINUUM-1847:

I think template is the correct name for what we have.  A template is something that you use
to create a new thing.

I would call what you are describing a "global build definition" -- one definition, and a
change in it affects anything currently using it.

> Currently, only when creating a new project can one use a default template. It is not
possible to add a default template when changing the default build definition or when adding
a new definition. Also, it seems that a change to a build template will only affect newly
created projects, not projects previously created with the template.
> A very nice and time-saving feature would be the ability to add a build definition which
IS the build template (e.g. non-editable) and not a create time copy of the said template
(as I understand it currently is). By doing this, a change in the template would be reflected
in all the projects using it.
