Subject Should DOSGi have it's own JIRA?
Date Mon, 14 Dec 2009 19:39:17 GMT

Quick question:

What are peoples thoughts about pulling the DOSGi stuff from the "CXF" JIRA 
into a separate CXFDOSGI (or just DOSGI) JIRA in the "Category: CXF" section 

There are pluses and minuses:
DOSGi has it's own release schedule, own version numbers,etc.... Thus, having 
it's own project in JIRA allows it to track those things properly without it 
affecting the main CXF project.

Also, DOSGi has it's own components such as its own build system, local vs 
remote discovery, etc...   Having it's own JIRA project would allow defining 
nice components for it's own uses.

On the minus side, it does kind of lower the visibility of the DOSGi issues in 
the CXF JIRA since they wouldn't be there.   

One COULD argue that JAX-RS could also be pulled out.   However, the JAX-RS 
stuff is currently part of the main build and released as part of the full CXF 
stuff.  Thus, keeping it in is less of an issue.  If we eventually split the 
builds into a "core", "webservices", "rest", etc... then it may make sense to 
do so at that time.
