Subject [GitHub] cordova-coho pull request: Added npm rc publish step
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2014 19:50:28 GMT
Github user stevengill commented on the pull request:
    I agree that having a private npm registry for testing in the long run is
    the better option.
    For now though, I disagree with not publishing RCs to npm. Why add a
    barrier to testing RCs? If we publish no tool rcs to npm, we would expect
    our users/testers to grab the tags for lib/cli/plugman/js, npm link them
    and then they are able to test. I'm sure we have commiters & contributors
    who wouldn't be able to do it properly now!
    Being able to tell our users npm install -g cordova@rc to test has been a
    great way to get them to try it before we do an official release. Even when
    we setup a private npm repo to do this, it will still be one more step to
    get people to test for us. Adding barriers!
    Worst case, we find a issue with cordova-lib, we will have to fix the
    version and do a minor bump and then republish as an RC. CLI & Plugman will
    also need to be republished. This happens infrequently enough that I don't
    think it is a big deal. Definitely when you consider how easy it is for
    people to test.
