Subject [VOTE] Establish development model based on Apache DB guidelines
Date Tue, 31 Aug 2004 18:44:28 GMT
Hash: SHA1

Derby is being sponsored by the Apache DB project and the Derby status
page states 'The Apache DB project will own the Derby subproject, and
the subproject will follow the Apache DB PMC's direction'. I assume the
'will own' means if Derby graduates from incubation.

I propose a consensus approval vote that the Derby development model
follows the guidelines defined by the Apache DB project. This will set
the initial rules for development, changes to the model could
subsequently be called for and voted on using the Derby developer
mailing list.

The guidelines are defined at http://db.apache.org/guidelines.html

There is one difference that the Derby code is in SVN and not CVS.

Note the decision making page at http://db.apache.org/decisions.html
and the Changes section on this page http://db.apache.org/source.html.

The Changes section indicates the commit model is:


Simple patches to fix bugs can be committed then reviewed. With a
commit-then-review process, the Committer is trusted to have a high
degree of confidence in the change.

Doubtful changes, new features, and large scale overhauls need to be
discussed before committing them into the repository. Any change that
affects the semantics of an existing API function, the size of the
program, configuration data formats, or other major areas must receive
consensus approval before being committed.
