Subject Re: [DISCUSS] SVN, versioning, and namespace
Date Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:00:40 GMT
So I will try and response to this as best as possible:

-Browsermap has nothing to do with this.

-There are 2 full W3C DDR solutions, ODDR and 1.x. If you dont accept the
1.x W3C solution, so be it. Just another reason we need to split the repo
and releases since we are seeing this world differently.

https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/devicemap/trunk/devicemap/java/classifier_w3c_simple/

-Your right about the namespace, everything does start with
org.apache.devicemap (for clients that support namespaces). My point is
that anything based on ODDR needs to have an ODDR tag in the namespace,
name, release name, release repo, whatever. It just needs to be named with
something unique to the client so it doesnt get confused with the 1.x Java
client.

-Sorry, but just because im doing the data releases doesnt force me to
support your work or any number of clients. Anyone is free to maintain and
release their own data. I do it because no one else is doing it. I have 1
more 1.x data release planned and if it works with ODDR, great. It probably
will. But once 2.x gets released, im not planning on releasing anymore XML
based ODDR data. You are more than welcome to backport the 2.x data to ODDR
format and release however you wish. *Blocking my data work to support your
branch is a non starter.*

So im still not seeing whats the point of this argument. You are not
bringing any solutions to the table, just once again opposing me for the
sake of arguing. The proposal is that we partition our work into different
repos/releases/codebases. This was proposed by Bertrand, Radu is already on
board. I am on board. Once I hear from Eberhard, thats pretty much enough
to move forward with something votable.
