Subject [Db-derby Wiki] Update of "PatchListMaintenance" by KatheyMarsden
Date Sun, 09 Jul 2006 15:00:15 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Db-derby Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by KatheyMarsden:
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/PatchListMaintenance

New page:
Derby maintains a [http://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&pid=10594&status=1&status=3&status=4&customfield_12310090=Patch+Available&sorter/field=issuekey&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=updated&sorter/order=DESC
 Patch List] of available patches  so that developers in the community can quickly see what
patches are  available and ready for review.   Open issues with the "Patch Available" checkbox
marked show up on this list.
Developers wanting a patch reviewed for either commit or even just for early feedback check
this box to get the attention of the community and uncheck it when review is no longer needed
because of patch rework in progress or commit.

Ideally the patch available list is a small, frequently changing list of patches that are
ready for  review.  To maintain this list we rely on distributed maintenance by developers
who ask for review by checking the box and those doing reviews.  Patch Contributors and reviewers
 please.

 1. Check the box when you want review.
 2. Make sure you are assigned to the issue if the box is checked. (You can unassign yourself
later or create a subtask if you  don't plan to address the full issue.)
 3. Uncheck the box when you no longer need review because of commit or because you need to
make patch changes or are just abandoning the patch.
 4. Heed the PatchAdvice Wiki page to make the patch easy to review. This will keep the list
moving.


Reviewers and the general community can make periodic passes of the list to find issues to
review.  In addition to improving the quality of the product, reviewing patches and keeping
the list small with fast throughput will help the community grow and  become more diverse.
 General maintenance also makes the list a more useful tool.  Like your mother said, leaving
the list a little cleaner than you found it is normally all that is necessary.

Check the following:

|| Are there patches that you would like to review or try || Check the [http://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ConfigureReport.jspa?filterid=12310751&mapper=components&selectedProjectId=10594&reportKey=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.reports%3Asinglelevelgroupby&Next=Next
Patch List by component]  to see if there are issues of interest to you and review or just
try them out||
|| Are there aging patches that need attention? || Check the [http://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&pid=10594&status=1&status=3&status=4&customfield_12310090=Patch+Available&sorter/field=issuekey&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=updated&sorter/order=DESC
 Patch List] for patches that are over 2 weeks old. Comment on the Jira issue if it looks
like the patch is no longer relevant, if you think more information is required for review,
or if you think the patch needs attention from someone familiar with a particular area||
|| Are all patches for Assigned issues? || Check the [http://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/ConfigureReport.jspa?filterid=12310751&mapper=assignees&selectedProjectId=10594&reportKey=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.reports%3Asinglelevelgroupby&Next=Next
 Patch List by Owner] to see if there are Unassigned issues and inquire why they are unassigned||
|| Are there patches that are out of date? || Check  some of the older patches and see if
they can be applied. Comment on the issue if the the patch can no longer be applied||
|| Are there stale patches that need to be removed?|| Check the [http://issues.apache.org/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&pid=10594&status=1&status=3&status=4&customfield_12310090=Patch+Available&sorter/field=issuekey&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=updated&sorter/order=DESC
 Patch List] for issues that clearly no longer belong there and uncheck the box.  For instance
patches already commited should not be on the list.||
